Asserting that the situation in the US is under control, Trump said the US also does business with other nations and wants other countries to be “happy healthy and well”.

“Let us see how it works out but I think it is going to work out fine. I hope so. We are working very hard, we are spending a tremendous amount of money also …about USD 2.5 billion on getting everything ready just in case something should happen and also helping other nations who are unequipped to do it,” Trump added.

The high profile CEO roundtable with Trump included captains of the Indian industry such as Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran and Aditya Birla Group Chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla.

New Delhi, April 6 : A day after the nation showed unity and solidarity against the coronovirus on the call of the Prime Minister, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi sees an “opportunity” for the country to “unite” despite differences and forge one purpose to defeat the deadly virus.

Rahul Gandhi shared a picture of two boys of different religions playing with colour on Holi and tweeted “The coronavirus is an opportunity for India to unite as one people, putting aside differences of religion, caste & class; to forge one common purpose: the defeat of this deadly virus.”

“Compassion, empathy & self sacrifice are central to this idea. Together we will win this battle,” tweeted Gandhi.

The party on Monday emphasised the need of testing as “If testing is not exponentially ramped up, we will be wasting precious time in the fight to save lives. We just cannot afford to lose even a single day.”
