Fears of the spread of the coronavirus are sinking markets Monday. 

The Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow are all down well over a percent due to fears around the coronavirus. 

 China’s National Health Commission has confirmed over 2,700 cases of the coronavirus, with over 80 dead.

The virus has spread throughout 10 different countries.

The CDC has confirmed five cases in the U.S.

And the incubation period of the virus could last as long as 14 days.

The CDC reiterated the five cases in a press conference Monday morning and said that it's investigating 110 suspected cases.

Jim Cramer focused on the fears around the coronavirus in his Real Money column Monday morning. 

"We have to presume now that the Coronavirus contagion is not stoppable, even as we would like to think it is. There were so many people who left Wuhan, the epicenter when they were still healthy and they are now coming down with the illness. It's pretty clear that the virus spreads rapidly from person to person, so rapidly that we are hearing lots of conspiracies about a bio lab in Wuhan that might have mistakenly discharged the coronavirus and it was not transmitted initially by animals to humans," wrote Cramer. 

During TheStreet Live With Jim Cramer and Katherine Ross, Cramer broke down the stocks he's watching.
