The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday approved a $2.2 trillion aid package.
It is the largest in history according to reports at Reuters.
The package is to help cope with the economic downturn inflicted by the intensifying coronavirus pandemic.
The massive bill passed the Senate and House of Representatives nearly unanimously.
The rare bipartisan action underscored how serious the global pandemic is.
As Americans suffer, the medical system threatens to buckle, and the cases grow hourly.
