Trump announces a "disaster" in America due to Corona

Shafaq News / US President Donald Trump ranked for the first time in the history of the United States 50 states under a state of disaster, not under an emergency.

The Corona epidemic caused all US states to submit to a federal disaster declaration simultaneously, for the first time in history.

All 50 states, in addition to the US Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico, received an official disaster declaration.

On Saturday evening, the United States recorded 1920 new deaths within 24 hours of the new Corona virus, which represents a slight slowdown compared to the previous day, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The day before, the United States had recorded 2,108 deaths from the virus, according to the Baltimore-based university.

This comes after a statistic revealed to Reuters that the deaths from corona virus infection in America exceeded 20 thousand cases, the highest toll recorded in the world, although there are indications that the epidemic may be nearing its climax.

Italy recorded the second largest number of deaths and reached 19468, and Spain came third with 16,353 cases, but it should be noted that the United States population is five times greater than the population of Italy and almost seven times greater than the population of Spain.

The United States has experienced its highest death rate so far from infection, with almost 2,000 cases reported daily over the past four days in a row.

Public health experts have warned that the total number of deaths in the United States could reach 200,000 during the summer, as after 30 days, the unprecedented restrictions on staying at home that shut down businesses and kept most Americans in their homes were lifted.

Orders to stay at home imposed over recent weeks in 42 US states have had a major impact on US trade.

Some economists expect that as many as 20 million Americans will lose their jobs by the end of the month, raising questions about the extent to which businesses can continue to be closed and travel restrictions.

The number of confirmed infections with Corona virus around the world is more than 1.6 million, while the total number of deaths exceeds 106,000.
