McStreamy.com – President Donald J. Trump today, March 13, 2020, officially designated a National Emergency to combat the speedily spreading  Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. He was flanked in the White House Rose Garden by members of the Coronavirus Task Force, under the direction of Vice President Mike Pence, and representatives of commerce and industry. The move enables red tape and protocols to be removed, which it is thought will speed up the process of responding to the ever-growing health issues, problems, and confusion that have arisen in the fight.

The United States National Emergency designation is hoped and expected to smooth the response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic by government agencies, health personnel, health facilities, commerce, and the private sector. Among other things, the designation gives “broad new authority”  to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to give “maximum flexibility to respond to the coronavirus and care for patients,” waiving federal regulations for doctors and hospitals.

The administration will attempt to expand coronavirus testing around the country by implementing “drive-through” sites at retailers, including Walmart and Target. President Trump explained that “Google is helping to develop a website to determine whether a test is warranted and to facilitate testing.” The tech giant, according to the president, has “1,700 engineers working on this right now.” It is hoped, if you pass the online test, you will then be directed to a testing location for followup.

Friday’s announcement apparently helped bring about hope on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average shot up nearly 2,000 points at the announcement’s start and The S&P 500 and Nasdaq surged more than 9 percent.
