Coronaviruses are a family of RNA viruses that typically cause mild respiratory disease in humans. A novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019.

How many (cumulative) total confirmed cases of COVID-2019 will be reported in the United Kingdom on March the 27th at 10 AM GMT by Johns Hopkins?
