Best-case scenario from Coronavirus is 15M dead, predicts study

As per researchers from the Australian National University, a look at seven scenarios of how the COVID-19 outbreak might affect the world, reveals that the best case would see 15 million deaths and a global GDP loss of $2.4 trillion. The study modeled the estimates on the 1968-69 Hong Kong flu pandemic that killed about 1 million people. The high severity model puts the death toll at 68 million.
