Today, fewer than 150,000 new coronaviral cases are registered every day in the USA. That’s down from almost 250,000 daily at the start of this month, but still more than double that in late October from March to a revival. More than 425,000 Americans have been killed in the pandemic, and health officials fear that the United States will lose 500,000.
The epidemic also pressured state and local government to ban restaurant, bar and other business activities and stopped Americans from leaving home.

President Joe Biden announced a coronavirus initiative of $1.9 trillion that would provide $1,400 monitors, for the bulk of the Americans, and other items which would add up to a total of $2,000 per adult, in addition to the checks currently being issued.
The proposed proposal will also include federal compensation for displaced Americans with $400 a week and prolong the ban on evictions and forfeitures until September. The plan for Biden would require the consent of the congress and the Republicans of Congress are already bulging at its size.
