U.S Donald Trump Declares National Emergency Over Coronavirus
US President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency to help handle the growing outbreak of coronavirus.
The declaration – “two very big words”, according to Mr Trump – allows the federal government to tap up to $50bn (£40bn) in emergency relief funds.
The move loosens regulations on the provision of healthcare and could speed up testing – the slow pace of which has been criticised widely.
There are 1,701 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the US, and 40 deaths.
Several US states have taken measures to stem the inflation rate, including banning large gatherings, sporting events and closing schools.
The virus originated in China last December, but Europe is now the “epicentre” of the global pandemic, the head of the World Health Organization said on Friday, as several European countries reported steep rises in infections and deaths.
Italy has recorded its highest daily toll yet – 250 over the past 24 hours, taking the total to 1,266, with 17,660 infections overall.
By March 12, many medical experts were beginning to express deep concerns about the small number of coronavirus tests that are currently being done in the U.S. In comparison to other countries with infections, more tests are being done on a daily basis than what the U.S. has done so far. While a limited number of tests are being done, most doctors are unable to test people because test kits are still not available.
It is feared that thousands of people who have been infected but remain unconfirmed may be infecting others.
During a March 12 House Oversight Committee hearing on the Trump administration’s preparedness and response, when asked why test kits were still not available Anthony Fauci, the director the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the current system a failure saying, “ Let’s admit it.
The idea of anybody getting [the tests] easily the way people in other countries are doing it? We’re not set up for that.”
