US passes $2tn disaster aid bill

By Ellen Daniel

The US Senate has passed a $2tn disaster aid bill, the largest in US history.

This includes a payment of $1200 to American adults who earn $75000 or less, and $500 per child.

The bill will also include a $500bn fund for companies, an additional $350bn in loans for small businesses and an increase in unemployment aid.

There have been 68573 COVID-19 cases in the US, and 1036 deaths. President Donald Trump has stated that he wants the country to “reopen by Easter”.
