How many cumulative confirmed cases of coronavirus in San Francisco will be reported by Johns Hopkins CSSE on April 1st, 2020?

Question

San Francisco - that beautiful city by the bay - is home to many Metaculus users who are asking themselves if the Coronavirus will come to their fair city - and if it does, how bad will it be?

How many (cumulative) total confirmed cases of coronavirus in San Francisco will be reported by Johns Hopkins CSSE on April 1st, 2020?

Resolution Criteria: The JHU Coronavirus monitoring dashboard will be consulted on April 1st, 2020 at 11 AM GMT. In case this is not available, other sources, such as the CDC or the WHO may also be consulted.

NB: This only counts the cumulative total of coronavirus cases that occur in San Francisco proper. The broader Bay Area is not included in the count.

EDIT 22 March: This question will now resolve on the basis of the data.citizen-times dashboard, as the JHU monitoring dashboard ceased to disaggregates CA cases by city or county.
