The total number of people infected with a virus often grows like a logistic curve. Suppose that 15 people originally have the virus, and that in the early stages of the virus (with time,t , measured in weeks), the number of people infected is increasing exponentially with K=1.7. It is estimated that, in the long run, approximately 7250 people become infected.
