LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - With news of the first "presumptive positive" case of cornavirus diagnosed in Clark County (as well as a similar case in Washoe County), county officials will be debuiting a show on their television channel Friday night discussing the virus outbreak.

“Coronavirus: What You Need to Know” debuts Friday, March 6 at 5:30 p.m. on Clark County Television (CCTV).

The 30-minute special report features a discussion about the coronavirus, which goes by the acronym COVID-19, how it’s contracted, what you can do to avoid it, what can be done to fight it in our community, and more.

Taking part in the discussion are Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) medical investigator Dr. Vit Kraushaar, SNHD Senior Public Health Preparedness Planner Misty Robinson, University Medical Center’s Dr. Shadaba Asad, who is Medical Director of Infectious Disease, and Clark County Fire Chief John Steinbeck, who oversaw the County’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) until being appointed chief in February. The OEM is a part of the Clark County Fire Department. The discussion is hosted by CCTV’s Randy Swallow.

The show will air numerous times throughout the coming weeks. A schedule is available on the County website at ClarkCountyNV.com. It also will be available for viewing on-demand on the County’s YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/ClarkCountyNV.
