There are people that think the COVID-19 coronavirus hasn't really spread that quickly. They say that there are only 300,000 plus cases since this started a few months ago. To them, it's not spreading "that fast."

Whether you think it's fast or not, the CDC website says:

The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in some affected geographic areas. - CDC.gov

 

I came across a website called FastCompany.com which listed a few maps. One of those maps, you can see how fast the virus has spread from it's origin point in China.
