US Congress pushing for further COVID-19 aid

It is obvious that what COVID-19 has done to the economies of nations around the world since its first confirmation in Wuhan China will be a story.

And even after a vaccine or drug has been found, it will take some countries some time for the economy to normalize.

Over 14 million and 593,000 deaths have been reported worldwide, and it appears that more and more cases   are expected with no deaths from approved drugs or effective vaccines. In the United States, over 3,699,307 cases with 141,168 deaths has been reported.

The U.S. Democrats and Republican leaders have been pushing to adopt something to solve the high toll of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Though it’s only 12 weeks after the president, Mr. Donald Trump signed a $3 trillion bill as a stimulus package in a troubled time caused by this highly contagious virus, it appears that the house is pushing for a further package. The virus is still spreading aggressively among Americans, with confirmed cases increasing.

Many say that the reason for the shooting of cases in the United States is due to the recent unrest across the country following the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody.

It is reported that most of the demonstrators never followed COVID-19 prevention measures, such as using face coverings or maintaining social distance.

The response to the virus was also political – some officials misled the public by refusing expert advice to wear face masks and maintain social distance.

In May, a $3 trillion bill, heavily backed by House Democrats, was primarily intended to fund the difficult state and local government and make more direct payments to families.

Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate majority leader who previously resisted another round of coronavirus aid, supports the $1 trillion bills, which focus primarily on protecting businesses and schools from liability lawsuits after a long downtime in the midst of the pandemic.

The House of Representatives, the leadership of the Democrats, is also pushing for a far more extensive and extensive package.

Given the huge differences between the two bills, McConnell said he doesn’t think we’ll get there and do something that needs to be done.

During the press conference earlier this week, Nancy Pelosi , Democratic House Speaker asked how often they had to say in the wake of the pandemic, adding that the US was at an even more critical moment.

Indeed, time is running out as unemployment benefits are extended to the more than 30 million Americans who have lost their jobs due to this world pandemic that will expire next week. With the upcoming presidential election in November, the bill will become very important at this point.

It seems that the two-week summer sessions are the only remaining chance for senators to pass this important law this year.

While many of the senators have been involved in a bloody battle over a number of initiatives to tackle several of the country’s diseases, some may have been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic.
