US President elect Joe Biden unveils 1.9 trillion dollar Coronavirus relief package

Washington:15/1/21:US President-elect Joe Biden has unveiled a 1.9 trillion dollar Coronavirus emergency relief package. The stimulus plan underscores Biden’s intent to aggressively shore up a deteriorating economy and address the devastation wrought by the pandemic. It is designed to provide another infusion of federal aid for families, businesses, and local governments confronting a surge of Covid cases.

Biden’s plan includes a new round of direct payments to US households, funding to promote the safe opening of schools, and mounting a national vaccine program. Biden has set a goal of administering 100 million vaccine shots in the first 100 days after he takes office on January 20.

The US government has approved two different vaccines for emergency use. Both require a two-shot regimen. So far, more than 10 million people have received the first dose.
