This is an unofficial source but apparently this guy (named Alexander Otto) in Germany has access to the correct information because he's been posting the data correctly for many years.

The informal source that has been recording Tysabri-related PML cases in MS patients hasn't been updated in over a year. However, this article in Multiple Sclerosis News Today (June 28, 2019) reveals that as of 12/18, the total number of PML cases in MS patients on Tysabri was 801.  The article is about a possible treatment for PML, filgrastim, and is entitled "Filgrastim Likely Beneficial for Patients with Tysabri-Associated PML":
