President Trump making efforts to respond to coronavirus outbreak

Yomiuri wrote that in response to the growing spread of the novel coronavirus in the United States, President Trump is demonstrating his commitment to preventing the virus from spreading further ahead of the presidential election in November. The paper noted that the President has held two press conferences on the subject in the past seven days, expanded the coronavirus travel ban to include Iran, submitted a request to Congress for $2.5 billion in supplemental spending to help combat the virus, and urged pharmaceutical executives to accelerate the development of a vaccine. The paper speculated that the President has taken such measures swiftly out of concern that the growth of the U.S. economy could slow if the volatility in the U.S. stock market continues due to the coronavirus outbreak.
