Donald Trump Has Announced A Large-Scale Disaster In All 50 States The First Time Ever

US President Donald Trump has approved a Declaration of a large-scale disaster in all 50 States in connection with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The last state was Wyoming, according to FOX News. As the President's Deputy Press Secretary, Judd Deere, said on Twitter, this is the first time a natural disaster has been declared across the United States. The emergency Declaration allows state authorities to obtain Federal government funds to fight the spread of infection.

"Although Wyoming has not yet reached a dire situation, as in some States, this Declaration will help us prepare and mobilize resources when we need them," said Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon.

Recall that in the United States since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, 20,071 people have died, more than 6 thousand of them in the state of New York. The United States has come out on top in the world for the number of deaths from coronavirus. In terms of the number of infected people, the US is also in the first place — 519,453 people.
