Really if that animation was true (and I mean absolutely true with no preventive measures) I'd think the whole country would be infected by now. Remember this all started back in November.
That and as some scientists are pointing out, real-life infections don't work the way some of the numbers are being presented. The 1 person=2.3 new infections for instance. In reality, since most people tend to interact with mostly the same people everyday, so infections don't spread as fast and can be contained.

The lockdown is necessary though.
