WASHINGTON (HRNW) – President Donald Trump said he had ordered the deployment of emergency medical stations with capacity of 4,000 hospital beds to coronavirus hotspots around the United States.
Trump told a news conference that he had told the FEMA emergency management agency to set up the medical stations in New York, California and Washington state.
He said eight stations in California would have 2,000 beds and that four stations for both New York and Washington state would have a total of 1,000 beds each.
“I want to assure the American people that we’re doing everything we can each day to confront and ultimately defeat this horrible invisible enemy,” he said. “We’re at war, in a true sense we’re at war,” Trump added.
