More than 1.4 million people are infected with coronavirus in the United States, 83.4 thousand people become victims of the disease.
The coronavirus of the new strain has become the greatest disaster in the history of the United States of America, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
According to data from May 13, over 1.4 million people were infected with the coronavirus in the United States, 83.4 thousand people became victims of the disease.
Pelosi said that because of the coronavirus pandemic, 33 million US citizens were unemployed.
вЂњWe all know these numbers. We are faced with the greatest disaster in the history of our country,вЂќ said the speaker.
She noted that the new $3 trillion aid package proposed by the Democratic Party вЂњbasicallyвЂќ is based on four previous bills to support the economy.
In addition, Pelosi criticized representatives of the Republican Party who are skeptical about the need to spend such funds, because earlier 3 trillion dollars have already been allocated to support the economy, and the US Federal Reserve continues to provide loans to businesses.
She emphasized that in the context of a coronavirus pandemic, inaction would be most expensive.
вЂњSome say: let's take a break. But many families suffer. Hunger, rent, bills, the severity of losing a job, or the tragedy of losing a loved one does not take a break,вЂќ said the speaker.
