Trump approved major disaster declaration for DC

United States President Donald Trump approved a major disaster declaration for Washington DC in an effort to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation's capital.

The city's Mayor Muriel Bowser previously urged the administration to declare a major disaster for the District of Columbia over worries about virus cases citywide increasing, with the number of infections standing at 342 as of Saturday.

The decision makes DC the twenty-second territory set to receive assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) over COVID-19.
