The moment was held outside of the Capitol building by Republican and Democratic members of both the House and the Senate.

There have been over 500,000 deaths in the United States from the virus and over 28 million confirmed cases.

The Senate is currently debating a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) likely will need every Democrat on board in order for it to pass, as Republicans have signaled they'll oppose it.

The federal government has already sent out two stimulus checks to help Americans with the economic hardships they have faced with the pandemic, but many say it's not enough.

The pandemic has caused unemployment to skyrocket as many businesses had to close down or reduce hours due to coronavirus lockdowns that have happened throughout the country.

Vaccinations, masks and social distancing are being pushed by health officials in order to lower the number of cases and deaths in the country.
