John Hopkins models infection levels are ten times higher than official numbers. Many minor cases are not tracked. They think 58000 people were infected by the end of January and it tripled over the prior ten days.
The official infections accelerated from about a thousand then to over forty thousand now.
This would ballpark the current infected cases at 150000-600000 now instead of the 40,000 reported.
