14 outside of China. Running list: https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/The unknown of COVID-19 is the most worrisome thing right now. Last I heard there have been three deaths attributed to the virus outside of China. Comparatively there are tens of thousands of deaths each year from influenza A/B in the US alone, some years the rates being within a few tenths of a percent of being considered a pandemic. Since influenza deaths hold steady year to year it doesn’t get the attention of the “what if?” associated with COVID-19. Hopefully the medical science experts will get it figured out soon!
