Coronavirus has the word on edge. The outbreak is now a global pandemic, and seven weeks after the first U.S. case was announced outside Seattle, the number of people in the U.S. now known to be infected with the new strain has surpassed 1,000, with 38 dead. And the numbers keep climbing.
Coast to coast, large public gatherings and major events have been canceled.
