United States President Donald Trump recognised a 10-year-old Pakistani-American girl as a ‘coronavirus hero’.

“Congrats to 10-year-old Laila Khan, a Pakistani-American girl scout recognized by President Trump during a ceremony honoring coronavirus heroes! Laila donated 100 boxes of cookies to local medical workers & firefighters,” tweeted the US Embassy Islamabad on Sunday.

The ceremony on Friday was held in the White House Rose Garden to honour local coronavirus heroes, including Girl Scouts from Maryland who donated cookies to local firefighters, doctors and nurses.
