Trump declares national emergency to combat coronavirus

US President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency over the novel coronavirus on Friday to tackle the growing outbreak of coronavirus.

“To unleash the full power of the federal government, I´m officially declaring a national emergency,” Trump said in a statement on the White House lawn.

According to the US President, the declaration – “two very big words”- allows the federal government to tap up to $50bn in emergency relief funds.

The precautionary move loosens regulations on the supply of healthcare and could speed up testing – the slow pace of which has been criticized widely.
