As coronavirus is on the rise with cases skyrocketing in California and Texas, the US Military announced that Texas and California will receive about 740 military medical and support personnel.
The troops were sent at the request of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state officials where they will primarily help civilian medical staff in their facilities.
Texas will receive the bulk of the support, with about 580 military medical and support personnel from the Army and Navy, which will be focused on Houston and San Antonio, as the number of infected people in the state continues to climb.
Texas’s first troops, an 85-member enhanced Urban Augmentation Medical Task Force from the 627th Hospital Center, Fort Carson, Colo., has arrived in San Antonio treating patients at five San Antonio area hospitals.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that a second 85-member team has arrived in Houston. “Texas is grateful to the U.S. Department of Defense for providing these additional resources to Houston and San Antonio as we work to slow the spread of [coronavirus] and care for our fellow Texans,” Abbott said in a statement.
Four more 85-person Army teams, along with a 44-person Acute Care Team and four, seven-person Rapid Rural Response Teams from the Navy were also activated for statewide efforts in Texas.
“Our soldiers train daily to maintain clinical skills so we can save and sustain lives wherever and whenever the nation calls,” said Army Lt. Col. Jason Hughes, commander of the 627th’s team in San Antonio.
“We’re proud to be here to support FEMA and Texas, and will work side by side with hospital workers to help communities as long as we are needed.”
The Biblical Prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that there will be pestilences as a sign indicating the nearing end of this age of grace.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
