Washington is considering a number of additional restrictions on entering the country in connection with the coronavirus.
US President Donald Trump did not rule out the possibility of introducing a state of emergency in the United States amid the spread of a new type of coronavirus. On Monday, March 2, reports Reuters.
During a meeting with representatives of pharmaceutical companies, which took place the day before at the White House, Trump said that restrictions will be imposed on representatives of those countries where the largest number of infected COVID-19 are recorded.
вЂњWe have already done this, as you know, in relation to the three countries in addition to China. So we will continue to do this,вЂќ the American leader said.
He also did not rule out the future introduction of a nationwide state of emergency. But he expressed the hope that this would not be needed.
