Coronavirus relief bill negotiations are making some progress and proceeding in a positive way, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi noted on Thursday.

“Republicans do not seem to understand the gravity of the situation,” Pelosi added. “There will be no short-term extension of unemployment insurance.”

Moreover, “Democrats will continue to negotiate on COVID aid until we get it done, it is on Republicans if they walk away,” US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer added.
