    ‘Will Not Be Forgotten’: Trump Thanks Modi For Supplying Hydroxychloroquine To US

    India has decided to lift a partial ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine to several countries hit by the coronavirus pandemic on a "case-by-case basis"

    US President Donald Trump thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allowing the export of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – an anti-malaria drug which is seen as key in the treatment of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

    Trump said in a tweet, “Extraordinary times require even closer cooperation between friends. Thank you India and the Indian people for the decision on HCQ. Will not be forgotten! Thank you Prime Minister @NarendraModi for your strong leadership in helping not just India, but humanity, in this fight!”

    Responding to Trump’s tweet, Modi said that India shall do everything possible to win the fight against COVID-19.

    Times like these bring friends closer. The India-US partnership is stronger than ever. We shall win this together,” Modi wrote in a tweet.

    India has decided to lift a partial ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine to several countries hit by the coronavirus pandemic on a “case-by-case basis”.

    The US President has earlier requested Prime Minister Modi to release the amount of hydroxychloroquine ordered by the US to treat COVID-19 patients and later hinted that India may face retaliation.

    Trump also accused the World Health Organization (WHO) of being biased bias toward China during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Trump also threatened to cut US funding to the WHO and said the UN Health Organization issued bad advice during the virus outbreak.
