New Orleans Health Department addresses coronavirus



New Orleans officials held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to talk about how they are staying ahead of the Coronavirus as other health officials warn the public.

Jennifer Avegno Director of the New Orleans Health Department addressed the media:

"There have been no diagnosed cases of the Coronavirus in the State of Louisiana, in the City of New Orleans," Avegno stated.  "The risk to Louisianians and New Orleanians remains very, very low."

Wednesday's news conference comes after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the spread of coronavirus is not a question of if it will happen, but when it will happen.
