The coronavirus pandemic is hitting the Navajo Nation particularly hard. As of Sunday, April 5th, more than 300 tribal members have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and more than a dozen have died. Health officials are bracing for more cases, even as much-needed supplies are starting to arrive. KSUT's Mark Duggan reports:

With the outbreak of COVID-19 and the numerous and far-reaching impacts to our region, KSUT has mobilized a news team to provide coverage of both breaking news and developing stories related to the coronavirus.  Stay-tuned for weekly stories during Morning Edition, Here & Now, and All Things Considered.  Stories will also be available on the KSUT website.
