The U.S. Senate on Wednesday night passed a 2-trillion-dollar stimulus package to blunt the economic fallout of COVID-19, after rounds of negotiations between Democrats and Republicans.

The package provides one-time payments of $1,200 per adult and $500 per child under the age of 17. The size of the rebate check for eligible individuals filing individually will be $1,200 per person or $2,400 for those filing a joint return plus an amount equal to $500 per child.
