SALT LAKE CITY — Here are the latest coronavirus-related updates from Utah and around the world.

In Utah, there are now 348 confirmed cases of COVID-19, which is an increase of 50 cases from Tuesday's numbers. Nationwide, there have been more than 60,000 cases and 800 deaths reported, according to Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Resource Center.

As COVID-19 cases in Utah continue to rise, state leaders are implementing a comprehensive plan to help facilitate the state’s health and economic recovery.

Meanwhile, Congress is expected to vote Wednesday on a massive $2 trillion aid package for U.S. workers, businesses and a health care system that has struggled amid the pandemic. That plan, which an agreement was reached on late Tuesday night, calls to send a $1,200 check to every adult and $500 per child, the Associated Press reported.
