Melania Trump calls Boris Johnson's fiancee over his infection

Melania Trump spoke with Carrie Symonds, the fiancee of Boris Johnson, on Thursday to wish her and the British prime minister well as they recover from the coronavirus.

Trump told Symonds 'the United States was praying for their speedy and full recoveries,' according to a readout from the first lady's office.

Symonds, who is pregnant, said earlier this month she suffered from coronavirus symptoms but was on the mend.

Mr Johnson spent three days in intensive care (ICU) because of the disease and seven in total at hospital.

The couple are understood to have been recovering at the Prime Minister's country estate, Chequers, when they received the call from Mrs Trump.

The readout from the White House said: 'Mrs. Trump expressed well wishes for Ms. Symonds and Prime Minister Johnson, and noted that the United States was praying for their speedy and full recoveries.

'Mrs. Trump reaffirmed that the United States stands together with the United Kingdom in the fight to defeat the coronavirus pandemic.

'Mrs. Trump and Ms. Symonds expressed optimism that the United States and the United Kingdom would get through this difficult period and emerge stronger than before.'
