US President Donald Trump ordered the sending of National Guard personnel to assist civil administration in medical aid and other arrangements in three states severely affected by the Corona virus.
According to the BBC report, troops will provide medical care and establish medical stations in New York, California and Washington.
It is to be noted that the United States is also among the countries most affected by the corona virus where 35,244 cases have been confirmed so far and 471 people have been killed.
Defending the deployment of troops, Donald Trump said, “The United States is facing a war situation, so I want American citizens to believe that we are doing everything we can for them and ultimately hiding. Will defeat the enemy.
The National Guard will establish 4,000 bedside medical centers, of which 2,000 will be in California, 2,000 in New York and one in Washington.
According to the report, New York City faces drug scarcity concerns, while a Senate bill on national-level relief efforts was thwarted.
Opposition Democrats in the US Senate were seeking passage of an emergency bill that was worth $ 40 billion, which included more funding for states and local governments, as well as proposals to fund hospitals.
Senators from Republican Republicans, on the other hand, are pushing for market assistance.
The United States has become the third country after Italy and China in terms of corona virus cases, but the death toll is lower than that of Iran and other countries.
Medical experts on American television channels warned that the total number of victims may be higher because people with less symptoms of the corona virus are not reporting their illness.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 80% of patients are recovering without external support, but the virus is more at risk for sick and older people.
On the other hand, the federal government in the United States has advised states to instruct people to stay home and provide financial and administrative support if they do so.
The US government has issued a stay order in homes in New York, California, Illinois and Oregon.
The list now includes the state of Michigan, where state authorities have issued orders for citizens not to leave their homes, except to buy food and medicine.
National Guardsmen also assist the administration in distributing food items nationwide
Chief National Guard Gen. Joseph Langail said the situation was as if each state was experiencing 54 storms.
General Joseph said that there are Cod-19s in all 50 states, 3 regions and DC, for which 7,300 personnel and women personnel of the National Guard have been assisted since this morning.
