Coronavirus in the USA: for the first time in history an emergency regime introduced throughout the country
US President Donald Trump on Saturday, April 11, released a declaration on the introduction of a "massive disaster" regime in the United States in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, this provision for the first time in the history of the country has spread to all 50 US states and the District of Columbia. Writes about it DW.
"The President continues to respond to requests from each of the governors regarding the protection of the health of all Americans," - said in this regard, Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere.
Wyoming Governor Mark Gorodon sent a request to Trump on April 9th. At that time, a little more than 200 cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in the state.
“While Wyoming has not yet faced such a dire situation as some other states, this declaration will help us prepare and mobilize resources when we need them,” explained Gordon.
Simplify funding and coordination
The White House specified that the emergency regime allows at the federal and local levels, as well as in relation to a number of organizations, to simplify access to state financing. In addition, it facilitates coordination between the state and the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as well as the US Army Corps of Engineers.
According to the private American Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, as of 07:00 on April 13, 557 cases of SARS-CoV-590 infection were recorded in the country, and 2 people died. In terms of the number of deaths, the United States is ahead of Spain and Italy, which are seriously affected by the pandemic. The total number of deaths has doubled - from 22 to 109 thousand - in just five days.
