Melania Trump Calls Boris Johnson's Pregnant Fiancée Carrie Symonds to Wish Speedy Recovery
The novel coronavirus disease has affected celebrities, stars, and ordinary people since it began last December. This week, US First Lady Melania Trump reached out to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s fiancée to wish them a speedy recovery.
On Thursday, Trump spoke with Johnson’s fiancée, Carrie Symonds, to wish her and the British prime minister well. The couple is currently recovering from a COVID-19 infection.
According to a readout from Trump’s office, she told Symonds “the United States was praying for their speedy and full recoveries.” The US first lady also took to Twitter to share her message to Symonds and Johnson.
US united with the UK against COVID-19
She wrote that she’d told the prime minister’s fiancée that “The United States & the United Kingdom will get through this difficult period & emerge stronger than before.” Trump also shared that the US was standing with the UK “in the fight against #COVID19.”
Earlier in the month, Symonds revealed that she had suffered from coronavirus symptoms but was now in recovery. She is currently pregnant with her fiancé’s child.
Johnson’s fight against the virus
Johnson, on the other hand, had to spend three days in intensive care (ICU) because of the disease. He spent a total of seven days in the hospital.

The United States & the United Kingdom will get through this difficult period & emerge stronger than before. We stand w/ the UK in the fight against #COVID19.— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) April 16, 2020
UK PM on the mend
Reports state that the couple was recovering together at the prime minister's country estate, Chequers when they received the call from Trump. Besides affecting the UK prime minister, the novel coronavirus disease also affected Easter celebrations in the US.
Celebrating Easter at the White House
Last month, the White House announced that the annual Easter Egg Roll would be canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, to mark the holiday on Sunday, Trump read "The Little Rabbit," a 2019 children’s picture book by Nicola Killen.
As the CDC studies the spread of #COVID-19, they recommend people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when social distancing can be hard to do. Remember, this does NOT replace the importance of social distancing. pic.twitter.com/HRaQHFgXxn— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) April 9, 2020
Urging Americans to wear face masks
The video of the reading was shared on social media platforms. The US first lady has also been trying to do her best in bringing awareness to Americans about how to fight the virus.
Thanking healthcare workers
Last Thursday, she shared a photo of herself wearing a face mask and urged the nation to do the same when in public. The day before, she released a video where she thanked frontline responders and healthcare workers who were fighting the virus daily.
