Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has wished a speedy recovery for the US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump, who are both in quarantine after having tested positive for the coronavirus.
"I hope that they pass this stage quickly to return in full health and wellness to leading the appreciated efforts of the United States toward working on combating this virus at the international level, for the sake of all of humanity," the president wrote on his social media accounts on Friday.
"May God protect our peoples and all the peoples of the world," he added.
Trump announced the news on his Twitter account on Friday, saying: "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!"
The first lady also tweeted: "As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together."
The announcement comes a few hours after one of the US president’s closest advisers, Hope Hicks, tested positive for the respiratory illness.
The virus has so far infected over 7 million people in the USA and caused the death of more than 212,000 others.
