The reporters on TV and radio really get on my nerves because they continually misuse and abuse the English language. The phrase they've been brutalizing most often of late is "increasing exponentially", when referring to corona cases and deaths. They think it's just an eloquent way of saying the numbers are getting larger. Which they are. But "exponential" is a precise term with a specific mathematical meaning: it's not a comparative or even a general magnifier. If the numbers were actually "increasing exponentially", every person on the face of the earth would have been killed already. twice. Next time, I'll talk about the way they misuse the word. "narrative". God help me, but I want to strangle them all.
