A U.S. health official says six new cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in Los Angeles County, where there was one previously.

Each case confirmed Tuesday night was due to a known exposure and not the result of community transmission, according to Dr. Barbara Ferrer, director of the county Department of Public Health. She spoke at a press conference on Wednesday. She says one person has been hospitalized and five others were in self-quarantine at home.

Mayor Eric Garcetti joins Larry to talk about the city’s response to the new coronavirus -- and its impact on the local economy.
