How Militaries Respond to Covid19

We can’t help but ask, how do the militaries, in all parts of the world, respond to the COVID19 outbreak. Is it doing us help?

The U.S. military’s coronavirus response includes protection help for service members and families, along with resources and many announced cancellations. Like the response from civilian officials nationwide, the military’s plans change day-by-day.

“They are making great progress there,” Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said Wednesday. Army medical research officials say it could take 12 to 18 months, if not longer, to develop a vaccine.

A guard for the country is all we need. People need to stay at home, streets must be guarded and airports are thoroughly screened for residents and citizens that are only from the US. Armies have been disinfecting public spaces, handing out food, and providing transportation and logistics support.
