The US Department of health will allocate $ 250 million to fight the desperation in society, which is increasing against the background of the coronavirus pandemic. The relevant Agency announces a tender for agencies that are asked to develop and implement measures to “inspire hope”, reports Politico.
“The winning firm will have to conduct a campaign that would make Americans cheer up, go to work. Its task will also be to notify citizens in a timely manner about the cancellation of previously imposed strict restrictions in the country due to the pandemic, the availability of medicines for a new type of coronavirus and medical achievements,” TASS writes, citing a source.
The Agency believes that the use of traditional, digital and social networks, opportunities of the sports and entertainment industry, as well as public health associations will help to achieve these goals. At the same time, it is specified that most of the money should be spent before January. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than six million people (6,029,695) are infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the United States alone. At the same time, most often a positive test for coronavirus is received by residents of Los Angeles, where 240 thousand 749 people have already fallen ill.
