Trump says will sign order on virus-related liability problems

WASHINGTON, April 28 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he will sign an executive order later in the day that addresses liability issues that have arisen from the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump said the order would have to do with the meat supply. Administration officials and some Republicans on Capitol Hill have said businesses that are reopening need liability protection from lawsuits employees might file if they become sick.
