Nationally the number of confirmed cases is already in the hundreds thanks to the concept of community spread; people getting infected who haven't traveled.

Today we talk to ABC's Dr. Jen Ashton about what we know and what we don't know when it comes to the novel coronavirus and what we can do to protect ourselves.
