Thirdly, there is the so-called doubling time, which is also of German Chancellor Angela Merkel as an important indicator for the evaluation of the measures was called. This is the time period in which the number of Infected doubled. The doubling time can be so good to see how strong an epidemic is progressing. In contrast to the case of numbers it is good if the values rise, because a high doubling time relieves the health system of potentially (more background and a sample calculation, see here).
