Public health officials throughout the nation are on alert for the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. It has killed nine people in China.

Another 470 cases have been confirmed, including one in the state of Washington involving a man who had traveled to China.

The Centers for Disease Control implemented public health screenings at select U.S. airports after the case was confirmed last week.

Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, joined The Show to talk about what public health officials in Arizona are doing.
