Scientists Demand The WHO Answer A Question There's No Real Answer To Yet

Weekly $600 Benefit Ends July 31 Unless Congress Can Agree

Reuters Congress approved a $600 unemployment bonus on top of state payments as part of its coronavirus relief efforts in March. Those weekly payments are set to expire on July 31, and there's no consensus from lawmakers about extending them.
