U.S. President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Today, I am officially declaring a national emergency. Two very big words,” he told reporters outside the White House Rose Garden Friday.

Trump also ordered each state to set up emergency operations centres and each hospital to active its emergency preparedness plan.
