The bill, H.R. 6074 (116) includes almost $6.5 billion to the Department of Health and Human Services, nearly $1.3 billion to the State Department, and $20 million to the Small Business Administration. A portion of these funds is intended to aid state and local response to the virus that has sickened more than 160 people in more than a dozen states.
