Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has gripped India, and brought the world economy to a grinding halt, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to US President Donald Trump Saturday on fighting the virus pandemic. 

Both the world leaders had a 'good discussion' and have agreed on deploying the full strength of the India-US partnership in fighting the novel coronavirus that has infected more than 2,900 in India. 

In the US more than 2,77,000 have been infected by the virus while up to 7400 have died.
