(Photo by Brendan Smialowski / AFP) (Photo by BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP via Getty Images) WASHINGTON - The federal government has provided more than $2 billion to help cover funeral costs for more than 300,000 families of people who have died from COVID-19, yet not enough people either know about the access to funding or have applied to get help.According to a report from Kaiser Health News, fewer than half of eligible families have even begun their applications to cover funeral costs, something that has been provided for by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) since April 2021. On average, the families that have received funding have obtained an average of $6,500, yet many families are still unaware that the money is still available. To solve this problem, FEMA said in March that it is launching a new campaign to raise awareness about the aid to eligible families. The number of people killed by COVID-19 in the United States reached 1 million, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University on May 18.While the average amount awarded per death is $6,500, according to FEMA, the COVID-19 Funeral Assistance program provides up to $9,000 per funeral and covers COVID-19 related deaths since Jan.

Police garage dispenser NOT updated in years, Energy Minister says MPs NOT sold fuel at subsidized rates
COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera says that posts shared on MPs being given subsidized fuel rates are false.“No MP from either side or anyone has been given subsidized rates than the current market prices given to the public,” he tweeted.Further, the Minister said he instructed the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation to carry out an investigation on the rates displayed in the dispenser at the Police garage and will make a statement in parliament.“No one will be extended privileges on fuel stations other than ambulance essential services,” he further tweeted.In his statement to Parliament, the Minister said the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has never sold fuel to any MPs at a price less than the market rates, on any occasion.“You (Speaker) has requested the Inspector General of Police over the possibility of providing fuel for MPs to visit Parliament during the days that Parliament convenes,” he told Parliament.“The filling station in question does not sell fuel as Sri Lanka Police usually makes the payment to the CPC for their fuel requirements and the Narahenpita Police Garage only issues fuel for police officers in liters, and not for cash,” he explained.He said following the Speaker’s request to the Inspector General of Police, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has made it clear to sell Petrol for Rs. 334.19/-, Auto Diesel for Rs.
