RED BANK, NJ: The U.S Congress has set forth three significant new laws that will improve virus testing, enhance medical treatments and move the American economy towards re-opening.

There are three phases that will be rolled out to implement the program; Phase I will provide funding for vaccine development, treatment, and medical equipment; Phase II will designate funds to ensure free testing and paid leave for struggling families; and Phase III will expand the provisions of the first two, plus provide $2 trillion for an economic stimulus and recovery package for millions of struggling Americans.

“The pandemic has inflicted tragic, massive loss of life and incalculable human suffering in New Jersey and around the world.  We mourn the lives lost to COVID-19.  The added impact on multiple sectors of society—overwhelmed hospitals, stay at home orders, social distancing and shuttered schools, places of worship and businesses - has wrought economic devastation like no other time in our Nation’s history.  These three new laws are providing reinforcements and comprehensive programs to help us fight back,” said Congressman Chris Smith in a released statement.
