US President Donald Trump on March 27 officially signed a $2.2 trillion relief package after the bill was passed in both chambers.

Specifically, 500 billion USD will be spent to support the most affected economic sectors, 290 billion USD to support households with cash of up to 3,000 USD/household.

Speaking at a press conference at the White House, President Trump outlined his top priorities in the campaign to deal with Covid-19.

The head of the White House said he has activated the Defense Production Act (DPA) to require automobile manufacturer General Motors to produce ventilators, one of the equipment that is seriously lacking in US hospitals.

In addition, he said he will study consultations from the Covid-19 response steering committee to issue new instructions next week in the context of his plan to partially reopen the national economy.
