Donald Trump has declared a national emergency to address the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic on Friday afternoon. He made this declaration from the White House Rose Garden during a press conference.
US President in his remarks said that as part of the national emergency declaration, “the action I am taking will open up $50 billion.”
Trump said his team expected “half a million additional tests will be available early next week.”
“Which will bring probably 1.4 million tests next week and five million in a month,” Trump said. “Our overriding goal is to stop the spread of the virus.”
