US President Donald Trump on Sunday approved the emergency disaster declaration in Washington, California and New York, ordering national guard to supplement local recovery efforts to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Trump said at a briefing that he directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to supply "four large medical stations with 1,000 beds for New York, eight large federal medical stations with 2,000 beds for California and three large federal medical stations and four small federal medical stations with 1,000 beds for the state of Washington".
Meanwhile, coronavirus cases also increased in Louisiana and Ohio states, where authorities announced an expanded curfew to limit the outbreak of the virus.
