WHO boss wishes Trump full and speedy COVID-19 recovery

GENEVA (Reuters) - The head of the World Health Organization, a body which U.S. President Donald Trump has savaged for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, on Friday sent his best wishes to Trump and his wife Melania after they tested positive for coronavirus.

“My best wishes to President @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS for a full and speedy recovery,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyeusus said in a Tweet.

The United States, formerly top donor of the Geneva-based body, has said it plans to withdraw and cut off funding, saying the WHO was too close to China.
