Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he anticipates the Senate stimulus package will keep the economy afloat for about three months, as the nation deals with the catastrophic economic fallout from the novel coronavirus. Senate leaders of both parties have\u00a0agreed on a sweeping $2 trillion financial relief package\u00a0to help American workers, businesses and the strained health care system survive the virus outbreak, although some senators are threatening to delay the bill.Mnuchin told reporters at the Coronavirus Task Force briefing Wednesday that small business retention loans would cover roughly 50% of private payroll, making loans that would supply eight weeks of salaries, as long as they keep workers employed, and overhead. The loans would be forgiven at the end of the eight-week period if the businesses keep their employees.President Trump said he will sign the bill "immediately" after it reaches his desk. But it\u0027s not yet completely clear when those payments to Americans will reach their wallets. Mnuchin said that in next three weeks direct payments would make it into most Americans\u0027 bank accounts if they have direct deposit. For the rest, the checks will be mailed. A Senate Democratic aide confirmed to CBS News that Americans could end up waiting as long as four months for relief if they don\u0027t have their direct deposit information on file with the IRS. The IRS can only mail roughly 20 million checks per month."Our expectation is this bill passes tonight and gets to the House tomorrow and they pass it," Mnuchin said of the massive relief bill.What the Senate stimulus means for airlinesDuring the task force briefing, Mr. Trump predicted the country will soon open up "like a rocket ship," as he eyes an Easter deadline for restoring a normal existence for the country. On Tuesday, the president said he could see the "light at the end of the tunnel," even as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the country continues to rise dramatically. Mr. Trump on Wednesday touted his administration\u0027s response to the virus in providing tests, ventilators and other needed equipment, as governors plead for more equipment."It\u0027s hard not to be happy with the job we\u0027re doing. That I can tell you," the president said of his administration\u0027s response to the crisis.Mr. Trump\u0027s impatience with the widespread closures is running up against an outbreak that continues to grow at a rapid pace. In the U.S., more than 61,000 people have tested positive and over 890 have died of the disease. The World Health Organization warned Tuesday that the U.S. could become the new epicenter in the COVID-19 pandemic.But Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx warned Americans that more cycles of this virus are coming."I know we\u0027ll be successful in putting this down now. But we really need to be prepared for another cycle," Fauci said.
