JUST IN :Trump Declared All Member States A Disaster Area



All U.S. states were declared disaster-stricken by President Donald Trump on Sunday night.

Trump wrote on Twitter that, for the first time in U.S. history, all 50 states in the country have been declared disaster-stricken by presidential decree.

 “We will win the war against the invisible enemy,” he added.

In practice, the Presidential Decree means that Member States classified as affected by the disaster may require special financial assistance from the federal government.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University and Hospital in Baltimore on Sunday afternoon, more than 550,000 people in the United States have been diagnosed with the virus, and the number of deaths from Covid-19 caused by the new type of coronavirus has risen to over 21,700. Deaths also rose steadily in New York, New Jersey, Florida and Colorado on Sunday.

Nearly all newspapers and televisions reported that real estate developer Stanley Chera, who died in New York City, was also one of Donald Trump’s best friends with the disease. The news was confirmed by the White House. 

Trump mentioned several times at his daily press conferences that one of his closest friends was seriously ill.
 “He’s a great guy, we’ve been friends since we were young,” he said of him at a news conference.

U.S. news agency AP released a compilation on Sunday night that more than 3,300 people died of coronavirus infection in nursing homes across the country.

 As neither the federal government nor Johns Hopkins University collects separate data on this, and individual Member States mostly publish only cumulative data, the data set has been compiled by the news agency. In their report, news agency staff highlighted that in Richmond, Virginia, for example, more than a hundred people were registered in a single nursing home, and 40 elderly people died of the disease. 

The situation is similarly bad in Maryland, New York, Massachusetts and northwestern Washington.

Epidemiologist Deborah Birx, a member of the government action management team, stressed last week that as more and more virus tests become available, testing residents and staff in nursing homes is a priority.
