White House on Coronavirus National Emergency

President Trump declared a national emergency to ensure that all needed resources can be made available to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Previous steps taken, such as travel restrictions and preventive advice have helped to reduce cases, but this will help the nation scale up to deal with more cases and help prevent the spread via testing, tracking, deploying resources to where they are needed and eliminating much red tape to allow that to happen.

A remarkable public-private partnership has been set up to help provide supplies and services to make this happen. a number of CEO’s and officials spoke briefly at a press conference on their commitment and roles to accomplish this. Hi-tech, healthcare and retailers figure most prominently in this, based on who we heard speak today.

Meanwhile, the Democratic-led house is attempting to pass a related bill, but is at loggerheads with the President and Republicans, as Democrats are attempting to sneak in Hyde Amendment loopholes to fund abortion.
