Trump deploys National Guard to 3 states over COVID-19

Trump deploys National Guard to 3 states over COVID-19”

30 people have died so far in California from the coronavirus with over 1,600 confirmed cases, though the actual number of state residents who have contracted the disease is believed to be much higher as public health officials have not been able to perform enough tests to get an accurate count.

Earlier, several state governors and local authorities pleaded with the federal government to make more medical supplies available.

The medical stations the National Guard will set up have a capacity of 4,000 beds, 2,000 of which will go to California, 1,000 to NY and 1,000 to Washington state.

The National Guard has been activated in the three states with the biggest coronavirus outbreaks, President Trump said Sunday, promising that more help will follow.

Facing criticism that he has failed to show genuine compassion during the outbreak, Trump said he wanted those who feel alone and isolated to know that "no one is alone as long as we are a united people".

"You will be short thousands of ICU beds, thousands of ventilators", Cuomo previously said. Gov. Jay Inslee sent a 74-page letter to President Trump on Friday requesting he make this declaration.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Sunday: "We're about 10 days away from seeing widespread shortages".

Opposition Democrats want the emergency stimulus bill, which is worth nearly $1.4 trillion (£1.2 trillion), to include more money for state and local governments and hospitals, while Mr Trump's Republicans are pushing for quick action to reassure financial markets.

"We're dealing also with other states".

"We are shipping. All those supplies, to all the demands, all the asks, all the governance, every day, we are - we're prepared to go to zero in the stockpile to meet demand", Gaynor said.

"We're at war, in a true sense we're at war", Trump added.

"Time matters, minutes count, and this is literally a matter of life and death", Mr Cuomo said.

For most people, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

While saying that action may have to be taken through the Defense Prevention Act, which would effectively nationalize efforts to produce necessary supplies, such as masks, he said the country's current system is "backing up the governors" rather than changing the system that supplies and allocates medical equipment.
