After New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and officials across the US pressured the federal government for days to ramp up its response to a growing crisis in their respective states, Donald Trump has announced that he signed off on a major disaster declaration for New York, per the governor’s request.

The federal government also will be shipping “large quantities” medical supplies as overwhelmed hospital systems brace for surges in Covid-19 patients.

New York also will get support to build four temporary hospitals, after Governor Cuomo announced plans for those centres early on Sunday.

A hospital ship, the USS Mercy, will be deployed to Los Angeles to expand the California’s medical capacity.

That aid will be delivered within 48 hours, the president said.
