US President-elect Joe Biden said that the previously adopted bill to stimulate the country's economy by almost $1 trillion is just the beginning.
вЂњThis is just the first payment,вЂќ Biden said, speaking in Delaware.
According to him, US schools and hospitals need at least another $10 billion.
вЂњAt the beginning of next year, I will present a plan of action for the coronavirus and will urge Congress to act quickly on this matter,вЂќ Biden added.
Earlier, representatives of the Democratic and Republican parties in the US Congress agreed on a program of economic assistance to the population and enterprises of the country. According to this plan, every unemployed person in the United States will receive an additional benefit of $300 per week.
As reported, the next tranche of economic assistance in the amount of $900 billion was adopted in a package with a part of the budget for 2021 in the amount of $1.4 trillion.
