US President Donald Trump signed into a law a coronavirus emergency aid package that includes provisions for free testing for COVID-19 and paid emergency leave.
The Trump Administration pressed for enactment of a $1 trillion stimulus package, to possibly include $1,000 direct payments to individual Americans.
With cases of the respiratory illness reported in all 50 states and the total number of known US infections surging past of millions of Americans hunkered down at home instead of commuting to work or school.
Tendayi Kapfidze, a chief economist, said that it is good that politicians are taking their time but he worried that the stimulus will create more debt for the US.
