From reddit (as of Sat 11-Apr-2020 10:03 PM ET):
  • I’ve heard that he died from Covid-19, with Vsauce & Numberphile saying he did, but I can’t find any reliable source for it. Does anyone know if this is a hoax or if he truly is dead? Thank you.
  • I looked through, and there still seems to be no news sources, only twitter accounts and Wikipedia (which has since reverted from saying he died to saying he didn’t).
The earliest references to his death that I could find are timestamped Sat 11-Apr-2020 3:00 PM ET.  Yet there's no mention of his death on the BBC, Reuters, CNN, NYTimes or other news organizations.  I hope rumors about his death are greatly exaggerated.

Sadly, JHC's death has indeed been confirmed. Frown | :(
