The US congress has passed a long-awaited 900 billion dollar package of coronavirus pandemic aid.
Senators approved the bill late on Monday, hours after it was passed by the House of Representatives.
The aid includes direct payments for many Americans and support for businesses and unemployment programmes.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign the package into law quickly.
President-elect Joe Biden welcomed the relief package but said congress needed to get to work to support his COVID-19 relief plan in the New Year.
