Coronavirus: Donald Trump to declare national emergency and invoke Stafford Act, reports say

Donald Trump will declare a national state of emergency as the US braces for the coronavirus pandemic, according to reports.

The action will invoke the Stafford Act to provide billions of dollars in disaster relief funds to state and local governments responding to the crisis.

The Stafford Act authorizes the president to declare a “major disaster” or “emergency” in response to an incident or threatened incident that overwhelms the response capability of state or local governments.
