Let's take a look at the coronavirus.

The World Health Organization has noted that the coronavirus has pandemic potential. They have declared it a public health emergency of international concern.

There are over 80,000 cases of the virus and over 2,700 deaths. Outside of China, there are nearly 2,000 cases. 

There are 53 cases of the virus in the U.S. and President Donald Trump has asked for over $2.5 billion to combat the coronavirus.

"Let's just play out the nightmare scenario for the bulls. You saw its sketch in yesterday's trading. Today it will come more into view. First, the coronavirus strikes here -- and strikes hard. That taxes our excellent public health system and causes a severe slowdown in our service-based, retail economy," wrote Cramer in his Real Money column on Tuesday morning.
