You wouldn't see exponential growth, though. You wouldn't even see linear growth. Not if the populace has already seen how to kill the things over YouTube, and communication systems are still largely intact.
I'm not arguing there'd be no instances of outbreaks. Sure - someone young and healthy has a stroke in the middle of a neighborhood - some families gets wiped out. But those kinds of stresses don't lead to societal breakdown.
Looking at my math a different way - each day right now 1 out of every 45,000 people die. Are you saying those 44,999 other people can't handle it if that death becomes somehow contagious? And not airborne contagious - contagious via staggering, brainless corpses?
