The above map from NYT Tracking the Spread of the Outbreak.

The Wuhan coronavirus has sickened more than 17,300 people in Asia, according to statements from health officials. Many other cases are suspected but not confirmed. As of Monday morning, at least 362 people have died, all but one in China.

The NYT comments "Various epidemiological models estimate that the real number of cases is100,000 or even more. "

Death Total Hits 426

The death count is at least 426 Confirmed, and I suspect far more in actual practice.

Officials in China's Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, announced 64 new deaths from the novel coronavirus on Monday. That brings the overall death toll from the virus to at least 426: 425 deaths in China, and one in the Philippines.

Officials also announced 2,345 new cases of the virus, bringing the total number of cases to more than 19,700.

You don't lock down tens of millions of people over 426 deaths.

"Though we may be in clinical trials within a year, I do not expect a coronavirus vaccine to be commercially available within a year," Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, told U.S. News and World Report.

“At this time, it’s unclear how easily or sustainably this virus is spreading between people,” CDC officials said.

"We're not 100 percent certain how close you have to be to somebody to get this virus. We're certain that if you're within 6 feet of them for some sort of a prolonged period of time, that would put a person at risk," Glatt continued. "We're not sure if there's a greater distance that would also put a person at risk. And we're not sure exactly how long a period of time you need to be exposed to somebody."
