COVID math question

If there are 7 billion people on the planet, and we have 164,000 reported cases of COVID, that’s .0023% right? Since the virus has been “in the wild” since, say, December, I’m unclear on the epidemiology risk. Is it that the numbers are vastly underreported? Or have infections not increased exponentially as anticipated? Trying to wrap my head around this.
