“We know the disease is spreading and we can expect additional cases in Arizona,” Dr. Cara Christ said during a press conference.

The virus has killed six people in the United States and more than 3,000 worldwide.

Arizona has had one case of COVID-19 since its outbreak at the start of the year. That patient, a member of the Arizona State University community, has since recovered and is no longer infected with the disease.
