Worldwide---?2-3000 depending on accuracy of Chinese statistics.

So, CNN, MSNBC, ABC etc., no, chicken little the sky is not falling

Also, I'm amazed the same people who are clamoring for an instant vaccine are probably the same ones that pass on their yearly flu shot
And now Fauci, whom you named as one of the experts on the president's team, is announcing that covid-19 is significantly more lethal than influenza. To quote him:

“I mean, people always say, well, the flu does this, the flu does that,” Fauci said. “The flu has a mortality of 0.1 percent. This has a mortality rate of 10 times that. That’s the reason I want to emphasize we have to stay ahead of the game in preventing this."

And yet we've only done 9,000 tests.
It's harder to hate close up.
