President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion- COVID-19 relief bill has cleared its final hurdle in congress. The bill is to help Americans deal with the impact of the covid-19 pandemic.

The house of representatives approved the massive economic aid plan on Wednesday along partisan lines, with no republicans voting in its favour.

Having already passed through the senate, the relief package now heads to Mr. Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

This sixth covid-19 relief bill is a major legislative win for Mr Biden.

White House spokesperson, Jen Psaki says the president will sign the bill into law on Friday.
