美国CCN报道,特朗普国家安全顾问奥布莱恩感染新冠病毒。

这是目前美国政府感染新冠病毒级别最高的官员。

报道引述白宫的声明称,奥布莱恩有着轻微症状,正在一个安全的地点隔离和办公。不存在感染特朗普总统或彭斯副总统的风险。

报道说,特朗普总统与奥布莱恩最近一次公开露面是7月10日,他们一起视察位于佛罗里达州的美军南方司令部。特朗普总统周一下午在离开白宫时对记者说,他最近没有与奥布莱恩见面。国安会不少工作人员对CNN说,他们一直没有被告知奥布莱恩新冠病毒感染。他们是刚刚从媒体报道中得知这一消息的。

彭博新闻社报道

美国国家安全顾问罗伯特·奥布莱恩新冠病毒检测呈阳性,目前正居家隔离。白宫随后通过声明回应指,奥布莱恩有着轻微症状,正在一个安全的地点隔离和办公;不存在感染特朗普总统或彭斯副总统的风险。

据知情人士透露,奥布莱恩自上周开始便不在办公室办公。报道称,奥布莱恩是在一次家庭聚会后感染了新冠病毒,居家隔离期间他仍主持美国国家安全委员会的工作,其中大部分工作都是通过电话进行的。他被怀疑是在家庭聚会中从一名大学年龄段的亲戚身上感染的病毒。他被指在最初接受检测时得出的是阴性结果,但在随后的复查时被确证感染了新冠病毒。据悉,现年54岁的奥布莱恩是迄今感染新冠病毒的职位最高的美国政府官员。他最近一次与特朗普共同出席活动是7月10日到访位于佛罗里达州的美国南方司令部。

2019年9月18日,特朗普宣布任命奥布莱恩接替约翰·博尔顿出任国家安全顾问一职。此前,自2018年5月以来,奥布莱恩一直担任负责人质事务的总统特使。另据美国约翰斯·霍普金斯大学数据,截至美国东部时间7月27日上午,美国累计新冠确诊病例已超过423万例,死亡病例超过14.6万例。

CNN英文报道:Trump's national security adviser tests positive for Covid-19

(CNN)President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to an official familiar with what happened.

O'Brien's diagnosis marks the highest-ranking Trump administration official known to have tested positive. It's unclear when O'Brien last met with Trump. Their last public appearance together was over two weeks ago during a visit to US Southern Command in Miami on July 10.

O'Brien is experiencing "mild symptoms" and is "self-isolating and working from a secure location off site," according to an unnamed statement to the press from the White House. That statement confirmed O'Brien's test results to reporters before his staff was formally informed. Several National Security Council staffers told CNN that they weren't informed that O'Brien tested positive and learned of the news from media reports.

O'Brien, one of Trump's top aides, recently returned from Europe, where he and his top deputy met with officials from the UK, France, Germany and Italy.

A senior administration official told CNN that O'Brien has been working from home since last week. A source familiar said O'Brien was last in the office last Thursday, when he abruptly left the White House. The White House statement said there is "no risk of exposure to the President or the Vice President."

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters that one of O'Brien's daughters also contracted Covid-19 and that's how he believes he got it.

The National Security Council chief was accompanied on the trip to Europe by Secret Service agents, staffers and multiple reporters. Multiple pictures released from the trip showed O'Brien neither practicing social distancing nor wearing a mask.

As the pandemic has spread, the President has defended not wearing a mask or social distancing, with many of his top officials and White House staffers following suit, saying that it's not necessary because they are tested every day. O'Brien's positive test underscores the unique challenges of keeping the virus away from the West Wing and the President's immediate orbit.

Last week, administration officials were alerted that a cafeteria employee on White House grounds had tested positive. Kimberly Guilfoyle, the President's son's girlfriend and top campaign fundraising official, tested positive before a trip to Mt. Rushmore earlier this month. Multiple Secret Service agents and campaign staffers tested positive after becoming infected while preparing for the President's Tulsa campaign rally in June.

Vice President Mike Pence's communications director Katie Miller tested positive for coronavirus in May, and one of the President's personal valets tested positive earlier that week.

O'Brien, Trump's fourth national security adviser, has been largely out of sight during the coronavirus pandemic. CNN has previously reported that rather than helping to lead the administration's response, he has delegated responsibilities to top aides and even bypassed coronavirus task force meetings.

Trump tapped O'Brien, a former lawyer and hostage negotiator, to the post in September 2019, one week after he fired John Bolton amid disagreements on foreign policy issues.
