WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration has requested an additional $45.8 billion from Congress to shore up U.S. agencies amid the fast-spreading coronavirus outbreak, a White House spokesman said on Wednesday.
The supplemental funding request, sent to U.S. lawmakers Tuesday night, would give billions more to the U.S. Health, Veterans and Defense Departments. The request is separate from the administration’s proposed $1 trillion stimulus package to address the economic fallout from the outbreak.
