President Trump has proposed sending money directly to the United States to help blunt the economic impact of a pandemic caused by a coronavirus, said then to “go big” to increase now-stalled economy.

Trump said he wants Congress to push through a large comprehensive package to help businesses and workers face difficulties -. one of the many shifts suddenly the government has made this week as the scope of the pandemic has come into sharp focus

“That’s the way I want to go. I just wanted to get it done and have a large infusion, as opposed to go through a small meeting every few days, “said Trump. “We want to go big.”

Steve Mnuchin Finance Minister said the government asked Congress for another coronavirus aid package – including loans and direct payments – which will inject $ 1 trillion into the economy. “It’s a big number,” he admitted. ‘This is a very unique situation in this economy. “

After weeks minimize the risk of viruses and rejected suggestions that the US economy was heading for a slowdown dramatic, Trump has made a change this week, took a more somber tone and ominous about the impact of a pandemic would have.

Pressed by reporters, Trump dismissed the suggestion that he has changed his tone. “I feel it is a pandemic before it is called a pandemic,” said Trump.

But prior to this week, Trump repeatedly compared coronavirus with the flu on average. And in early March, Trump said he did not think it was ‘inevitable’ that the coronavirus will spread across the country, contrary to health officials at the time. < p> send money immediately

Mnuchin met with lawmakers on Tuesday to discuss the details of the proposed rule. He said Trump wants to begin sending checks in the next two weeks, although it was not immediately jela s what will possib le or how it would work.

It is not clear what the ceiling of income may be placed on the stimulus payments, but Mnuchin said the government did not want to send a check for millionaires.

administration also plans to allow Americans to defer payment of taxes up to $ 1 million for 90 days.

Mnuchin stressed that the banks and the market will remain open and that the US will be able to access their money and shares. “We may get to the point where we shorten hours if it is something they have to do,” he said.

“We’ll see what happens afterwards”

On Monday, the White House to slow the spread of coronavirus during the next 15 days, urging older Americans to stay home. Trump asks all residents to avoid the crowds of more than 10 people, a trip to avoid and stop eating at restaurants.

Meanwhile, dozens of state and local officials who issued sweeping orders to close the school for millions of children and closing the bars and restaurants for all but takeout orders. Areas hit hard by the spread of the virus, such as San Francisco, has gone further, mandates that residents stay at home and work from home.

Trump ruled out the idea of ​​a nationwide lockdown today but did not rule out taking more stringent measures as the pandemic continues.

Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House response, urging people of all ages to heed guidelines. “We heard every night from people who are not in work time moving to another area of ​​the bar and large gatherings. If we continue that process, we will fail to contain this virus,” he said.

“We are asking young people to stop going out in public places, bars and restaurants, and spread the virus without symptoms to countertops and buttons and stores and grocery carts,” he said.

on Tuesday afternoon, more coronavirus pandemic than 195,000 people worldwide. In the US, there are far more than 5,700 confirmed cases.

With federal officials this week, public health experts say the prevalence of the virus in the US is expected to get worse before it gets better, for testing in this country has until now rarely.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that there would be several weeks or more before health professionals can assess whether social distance measures slowed the spread of the virus. Fauci has helped lead the government’s response to the virus.

In Congress, on Monday, paid sick leave and testing for the Senate, which is expected to vote on a measure this week. Earlier this month, Congress passed a package of about $ 8 billion to address the response effort.

In addition, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer proposed $ 750 billion to fund salary increases for unemployment insurance, coronavirus care and emergency child care assistance. The spending measure separate from the White House sought help from Congress.
