Coronavirus caseloads are back down, but death totals remain high in Arizona.

After reporting more than 4,000 cases Feb. 9, state health officials added 1,977 new infections around the state Feb. 10, and 176 new fatalities to its daily dashboard.

After mounting pressure from public health experts and news organizations, the state created a dashboard Feb. 10 showing some of the data about how it's dispensing vaccinations. And Pima County is getting its first 24-hour vaccination site.

For more about those developments and all things COVID-19, The Show spoke with Dr. Shad Marvasti, the director of Public Health, Prevention and Health Promotion at the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix.
