Jim Cramer has some thoughts about the coronavirus.
When asked what was top of mind for Cramer during TheStreet Live With Jim Cramer and Katherine Ross, Cramer said that it was two things -- the coronavirus and healthcare.
So let's break down the most recent stats around the coronavirus.
The coronavirus officially has a name - COVID-19
The virus has killed over 1,100. It’s infected around 45,000 people.
And Carnival’s Princess Cruises Diamond Princess, the cruise ship off the coast of Japan, now has 175 confirmed cases of the virus.
China’s JD.com is looking to hire over 20,000 positions, some of which are temporary, to help, and I quote, “minimize the impact of the epidemic on employment in the short term.”
The positions will include warehouse workers, drivers and couriers.
Watch the video above for Cramer's take on the coronavirus.
