Over 160,000 people have succumbed from the coronavirus pandemic in the USA and as the relief talks stall, president trump has said that he would issue an executive order to grant financial relief to American citizens after the talks between the congressional democrats and white house officials failed.

The grim milestone that includes over 10,000 fatalities around the world over the past few days came as Americans and their leaders remained largely divided over these issues like mask orders, business closures, testing, and reopening of schools.

Elected leaders should consider addressing this crisis as public health instead of a political matter.

Dr. Melanie Thompson, an Atlanta internist stated that the state and federal governments ought to further subsidize access to more rapid testing for senior living facilities and schools. Congress should offer a financial safety net for those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 including the essential workers.

Also, the president said that he was considering issuing an executive order to suspend the payroll taxes for the Americans upto the end of 2020 and extending the current supplemental jobless benefits incase the white house doesn’t reach any deal on the relief package with the congressional democrats.

Speaking at a news conference in Bedminster, New Jersey, president trump vowed to issue an executive order after negotiations between these two sides stalled on Friday as Euro is rising for the first time in 3 days ahead of the Junker Trump meeting.

Democrats stated that they had already agreed to cut down the $3.4 trillion suggestions, but republicans were still not agreeing to more than double the current $1 trillion counter offer.

Coronavirus cases are still on the rise in at least 20 US states with the center of the pandemic shifting from Sunbelt states like Texas, Florida, and California to the Midwest.

MOTORCYCLES, RESTAURANTS, AND SCHOOLS

About 100,000 are expected to travel to Sturgis, South Dakota, this weekend for the yearly 10-day motorcycle rally. This is raising concerns that such popular events might result in a new wave of COVID-19 cases.

City authorities in Alaska won a court ruling on Friday in favor of banning indoor restaurant dining after they had sued an eatery that had defined the emergency order stopping this practice.

On the other hand, the governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, slightly rolled back any plans to reopen the economy, minimizing the maximum number of people allowed at the outdoor gatherings from 100 to about 50.

Reopening of schools also remained a very divisive issue across the globe with the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo says that about 700 districts in the state might reopen classrooms, but further urged them to consult with parents, students, and teachers.

The New York governor further said that it seems like New York is the only state that is doing better with regards to COVID-19 and if there is any state that’s worth opening the schools, then that would be New York.

In New York, there are about 1.1 million children who attend school, which makes it the largest network of schools in the United States. Bill De Blasio, who is the Mayor, indicated that student attendance would be limited to 1-3 days each week.
