Trump offers US medical help to 'incredible guy' Boris Johnson

US president Donald Trump offered the help of US drug companies in the treatment of Boris Johnson who is in intensive care with coronavirus. Trump said the companies have ‘already had meeting with the doctors’ of the British prime minister, who he called 'an incredible guy'. Trump did not name which companies are offering help. Asked by the Guardian whether the prime minister’s initially relaxed approach to the pandemic may have been a mistake, Trump – who took a similar approach in the early weeks – replied cautiously. 'Boris was looking at it differently. He was looking at it earlier. He was looking at it like: ride it out. There were many people thinking about riding it out. Meaning, whatever it is, it is. But then you see what starts to happen, then the numbers become monumental, and they decided not to do."
