North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) held a briefing on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Several topics were discussed, including increased testing capacity, new guidelines for state prisons, protecting the residents and staff at congregant care facilities, and the concerns surrounding unemployment. While addressing the president’s recent announcement on the guidelines for reopening the economy, Gov. Cooper said that governors and states around the country have made it clear that they are still in need of federal assistance, that “when governors are faced with global supply chain breakdowns, when it comes to supplies and equipment, the federal government must help more,” and that the easing of restrictions in the state with a lack of medical supplies “is like setting off on a 3-day camping trip with enough food for just one night.” close
