US House Democrats: Coronavirus aid must include paid sick leave, other help

WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - U.S. House Democrats on Tuesday said any federal economic assistance amid the coronavirus outbreak must directly affect people most directly impacted by the disease, not the wealthiest individuals or multinational corporations.

Potential aid should include paid sick leave, enhanced unemployment insurance, food security and affordable testing and treatment, House Democratic Caucus Vice Chair Katherine Clark told reporters at a news conference.
