Coronavirus emergency mode introduced in USA: what does it mean


To combat the spread of coronavirus in the United States on March 13, President Donald Trump announced the introduction of a nationwide emergency regime.


In the United States, the right to impose an emergency regime rests with the head of state, and the introduction of an emergency regime is strictly regulated by the National Emergencies Act of 1976.

The introduction of this regime allows without delay to allocate significant funds from the federal budget to local and state administrations to contain the scale of the infection.

In the case of a coronavirus infection, we are talking about $ 50 billion, which will be used to combat the epidemic.

In addition, the introduction of a state of emergency became the basis for the introduction of a temporary ban (30 days) on entry from 26 European countries that are members of the Schengen visa-free zone.

The list includes Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain , Sweden and Switzerland.

An exception is made for the UK, but Trump does not exclude that in the event of a worsening situation, Foggy Albion will be included in this list.

Also, the introduction of a state of emergency affected the speed of decision-making by the Food and Drug Administration, which within a few hours approved a new virus test proposed by Swiss pharmacists.

In addition, US authorities will purchase 5 million tests from the US private sector.

The United States military was not left out.

In connection with the outbreak of the new coronavirus, the Pentagon has limited the internal movements of military personnel and their families.

As we can see, Washington has taken unprecedented measures to combat the spread of coronavirus. How effective they will be will become clear within the next 30 days.

      The right of citizens of the Russian Federation to freedom of movement, the choice of a place of stay and residence within the Russian Federation in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation may be limited:
      in the border zone;
      in closed military camps;
      in closed administrative-territorial formations;
      in areas of environmental disaster;
      in certain territories and settlements, where in case of danger of the spread of infectious and mass noncommunicable diseases and poisoning of people, special conditions and regimes of residence of the population and economic activity are introduced;
      in territories where a state of emergency or martial law is imposed.

      This applies to the Russian Federation.
      As for the US, about it everything is clearly written in Russian in the article:

        In Latvia, despite European values, we have introduced an emergency mode. Well done! Otherwise, it is impossible even to slow down the spread of the disease. Starting March 23, my firm (15 - 20 people) together goes on vacation for three weeks! Well done, work is connected with traveling, there is nothing to run into and spread the infection. All schools are closed, entertainment is delayed for at least a month, and so on in the same vein!
        But what about democracy and the right to free movement? laughing - sarcasm.
        Seriously taken, well done. - approval.

    An interesting comparison is that in the USA all religious organizations switched to the service via the Internet (church / synagogue / mosque), and in Russia the Russian Orthodox Church refused to close the churches. Or do not want to lose profits, or they know the secret of disinfecting the relics that kiss.
    And in Amer Las Vegas all the “temples” (ie casinos) are open, and all the shows go on!
    Local authorities (in our state) have installed stops on several roads, where all car passengers receive a free coronavirus test.
    Yesterday we received a letter from a gas / electric company that will not be punished by attendants for a delay of 2 months.
