Science reports the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced an additional coronavirus relief bill, The HEROES Act, which contains billions of dollars to support needed research funding for the pandemic.  Unfortunately, this bill also requires support in the Senate and the White House which may not be there.  The bill would provide additional funds for COVID-19 research for NIH, NSF and other U.S. research agencies as well as for research institutions to help "defray expenses (including lost revenue, reimbursement for expenses already incurred, technology costs associated with a transition to distance education, faculty and staff trainings, and payroll) they have incurred in response to the pandemic." 

The bill would support needed research on the virus and the institutions where this work would be done.
