Geneva: WHO says, “our prayers are with Trump And Melane.”
The World Health Organization wished US President Donald Trump a speedy recovery from Covid-19 and avoided criticising his disdain for its advice on protecting against the virus.
Previously, Trump has been a fierce critic of the WHO and its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, accusing the UN health agency of botching its response to the crisis.
The United States formally started its withdrawal from the WHO in July, making good on Trump’s threats to deprive the organisation of its top donor.
WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus wished Trump and his wife Melania, who is also infected, “a full and swift recovery”, adding: “Our prayers are with them.”
