I don't know. We have 50,000 and Vietnam:
Vietnam is a classic example. It began lifting lockdown restrictions last week after claiming it had not suffered a single coronavirus death. Despite sharing a huge border with China and having a population of 95 million, Vietnam acted quickly to enforce a strict lockdown followed by a swift return to normal. Cafes and shops in Hanoi began reopening last week and everyone is smiling. There were 268 infections in total—not bad for a population of 95 million—but not one of these infections led to death.
