Last I heard, it was 2 confirmed cases in Cali and 2 confirmed in Illinois with one of those just having been confirmed today as the first human to human known in the US.
I'd say someone looked at the numbers and assumed the larger number of cases being investigated is the number of known infections while the smaller number is the number of deaths. The rumors ran from there.

if I'm not mistaken, there's a girl who tested positive for this virus in Tempe.
A college student at ASU.
Authorities are likely testing everyone she's come in contact with since she returned from China recently
