Governor Edwards to Talk Coronavirus in NW Louisiana
Governor John Bel Edwards will bring us an update on the Coronavirus crisis in Louisiana on Friday morning. The governor will join us live on KEEL from 8:40-8:55am.
There are now 2305 cases in Louisiana including 83 deaths. There are now 115 cases in Caddo Parish including 1 death and 25 cases in Bossier Parish. There are also 8 in Webster, 2 in Claiborne, 1 in Bienville, 11 in DeSoto and 2 in Natchitoches Parish.
The Governor says the stress on the health care system in New Orleans is at the limit and he is concerned that same problem could happen in our area as well. He says the increase in cases in our state is alarming and we have not yet started flattening the curve. But he is hopeful that his "stay at home" order will help impact the spread of the virus.
