Washington: US President-elect Joe Biden said his administration will put forward another COVID-19 relief package next year, including a new round of stimulus payments.

At a news conference on Tuesday, Biden said a $900 billion relief package passed by Congress this week was a “first step” but that the government will have to do more. “Here is the simple truth: Our darkest days in the battle against COVID are ahead of us, not behind us,” he said.
