It is being called the Noah’s Ark of citrus, The Givaudan Citrus Variety Collection at UC Riverside in California and it has over 1,000 different citrus specimens. But one thing that could destroy it all, is the bacterial infection known as citrus greening which kills trees and produces inedible fruit. Citrus greening has caused over $2 billion in losses in Florida and worries are that it could also ruin things in California. The infection is transmitted by small insects, so the only way to keep them out is to put nets and screens around the trees. Gustavo Arellano, reporter at the LA Times, joins us for the effort to save citrus from greening. Next, we have the first possible instance of community exposure of COVID-19 in northern California. A woman has been infected and she did not travel to the heart of the outbreak in China, or have contact with anyone that had the virus. It is concerning because it could be a sign that it is spreading in the community and it is tough to track who might have had contact with this woman. President Trump has set up a COVID-19 task force led by Mike Pence to handle the federal response but it continues to seem that coronavirus will continue its spread. Erin Allday, health writer at the San Francisco Chronicle, joins us for what to know about the latest case.
