State Health Director: Arizona Numbers Remain Low, But Coronavirus Spread Hard To Predict

While other states are seeing spikes in the number of coronavirus cases, Arizona remains low. Two people have been confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another four people presumptively tested positive.

Still, there is reason to remain vigilant. Two cruise ship passengers who flew through Sky Harbor International Airport last month were later diagnosed with COVID-19. They could have passed the virus on to people sitting near them.

Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, joined The Show for an update on the situation in Arizona.
