US President Joe Biden has called on the Senate to quickly pass a 1.9 trillion dollar coronavirus relief package. He spoke from the White House after the House of Representatives approved the bill. The package includes 1,400 dollar direct payments to individuals and the extension of unemployment benefits to millions of Americans. The president hopes to see the bill become law before the termination of current additional unemployment benefits on March 14.
