INDIA, UK, BELGIUM: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished Donald Trump a quick recovery on Friday after the US president revealed he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

“Wishing my friend @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS a quick recovery and good health,” Modi said on Twitter.

Trump, 74, first announced on Twitter that he and First Lady Melania Trump, 50, had tested positive for the virus. “We will get through this TOGETHER!” Trump wrote.

The Indian and US leaders appear to enjoy warm relations, with Modi hosting Trump at a huge US-style rally in his home state of Gujarat in February.

In September 2019 Trump and the Indian premier attended a similar event in Houston, Texas dubbed “Howdy Modi” in front of a huge crowd of Indian Americans.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had his own brush with death from Covid-19 this year, on Friday wished US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a rapid recovery.

“My best wishes to President Trump and the First Lady. Hope they both have a speedy recovery from coronavirus,” Johnson tweeted.

Meanwhile, EU chief Charles Michel on Friday wished President Donald Trump and his wife Melaniaa quick recovery after the US first couple tested positive for Covid-19.

“Wishing @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS a speedy recovery. Covid-19 is a battle we all continue to fight. Everyday. No matter where we live,” Michel said in a tweet.

Russia wishes US President Donald Trump a “speedy recovery” after he tested positive for Covid-19, the Kremlin spokesman said Friday.

“Of course we wish President Trump a speedy and easy recovery,” President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists. - AFP
