U.S. President Donald Trump held a press conference in which he declared national emergency in the United States over coronavirus and called on hospitals to activate emergency plans.
while adressing Trump said “I am declaring a national emergency. Two very big words.”
He further stated the move will allow the US to “unlock” its full capabilities in combatting the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.
Trump added that he does not want everyone getting tested for coronavirus, while seeking to insist such testing would rapidly be available for those who required it.
