On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted to approve an emergency aid package meant to cushion some of the economic damage from coronavirus crisis.
The Senate voted 90-8 to pass legislation on providing more than $100 billion in aid, including financing free testing for the virus, expanded paid sick leave, additional food aid and other urgent steps.
Details of the plan were worked out last week between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin.
The bill will now go to President Donald Trump for signing into law. Congress and the White House are now discussing additional economic stimulus legislation.
