据报道,奥布莱恩在一次家庭活动后感染了冠状病毒,他在家中被隔离,同时仍负责国家安全委员会(NSC),他的大部分工作都是通过电话完成的。


新华社华盛顿7月27日电美国白宫27日宣布,特朗普总统国家安全顾问罗伯特·奥布莱恩在新冠肺炎检测中呈阳性。


白宫在一份声明中表示:“他的症状轻微,一直在自我隔离,并在安全地点工作。”“总统或副总裁没有风险。”


诊断结果使身为特朗普高级助手的奥布莱恩成为已知被检测出该病毒呈阳性的白宫级别最高的官员。该病毒已经感染了420多万美国人,在美国造成14.5万多人死亡。


川普星期一下午前往北卡罗来纳州之前在白宫对记者说,他最近没有见到奥布莱恩。


我听说他在测试。是的。我没有见过他。他补充说,他不知道他的第四名国家安全顾问是什么时候第一次被检测出阳性的。


在多家美国媒体星期一上午报道了这一消息后不久,白宫就宣布了有关“奥布赖恩”的消息。


据彭博新闻社(Bloomberg News)援引知情人士的话报道,现年54岁的奥布莱恩上周晚些时候就已经离开了办公室。美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)援引消息人士的话说,特朗普上周四离开了他在白宫的办公室。


据报道,奥布莱恩在一次家庭活动后感染了冠状病毒,他在家中被隔离,同时仍负责国家安全委员会(NSC),他的大部分工作都是通过电话完成的。


NSC是美国总统执行办公室的一部分,就国家安全和外交政策向总统提供建议。国家安全顾问办公室距离白宫椭圆形办公室只有几步之遥,椭圆形办公室是总统的正式办公场所。


奥布莱恩是在约翰·博尔顿(John Bolton)被驱逐后,于2019年9月被特朗普任命为该机构负责人的。奥布莱恩最近刚从欧洲回国,他在那里会见了英国、法国、德国和意大利的官员。这次旅行公布的多张照片显示,奥布莱恩既没有练习社交距离,也没有戴面具。


白宫最近结束了对所有进入白宫大楼的人的定期体温检查,但是那些与川普有密切接触的人仍然要接受快速体温检查。


白宫新闻秘书麦肯尼在上周的一次新闻发布会上说,川普“经常”进行核试验。


麦克尼尼在白宫对记者说:“我在这个讲台上已经说得很清楚,总统是美国最经得起考验的人。”“他比任何人接受的测试都多,一天要接受多次测试,我们相信他的行为是恰当的。”


然而,特朗普驳斥了麦cenany关于他一天不止一次测试的说法。


“我只知道一个。他在上周的白宫新闻发布会上对记者说:“我平均每两天或三天做一次测试。”“我不知道在什么时候,我在一天内参加了两次考试,但我可以预见这种情况会发生。”


上周,在白宫附近艾森豪威尔行政大楼的自助餐厅工作的一名员工被检测出感染了冠状病毒,在总统前往他在新泽西州贝德明斯特的高尔夫俱乐部之前,一名被派到特朗普直升机中队的美国海军陆战队员也被检测出感染了病毒。


此前,特朗普的一名军事随从和副总统迈克·彭斯的新闻秘书被检测出病毒呈阳性。

O'Brien reportedly came down with coronavirus after a family event and has been isolating at home while still running the National Security Council (NSC), doing most of his work by phone.

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Robert O'Brien, national security advisor for U.S. President Donald Trump, has tested positive for COVID-19, the White House announced on Monday.

"He has mild symptoms and has been self-isolating and working from a secure location off site," the White House said in a statement. "There is no risk of exposure to the President or the Vice President."

The diagnosis has made O'Brien, a top aide for Trump, the highest ranking White House official known to have tested positive for the virus, which has infected more than 4.2 million Americans and killed more than 145,000 people in the United States.

Speaking to reporters at the White House before a trip to North Carolina Monday afternoon, Trump said he hasn't seen O'Brien lately.

"I heard he tested. Yeah. I have not seen him. I'm calling him later," said the president, adding that he didn't know when his fourth national security advisor first tested positive.

The White House's announcement on O'Brien came shortly after multiple U.S. media outlets broke the news on Monday morning.

O'Brien, 54, has been out of the office since late last week, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the situation. He left his office in the White House last Thursday, CNN reported, citing a source.

Part of the Executive Office of the President of the United States, the NSC advises the President on national security and foreign policy. The national security advisor's office is just a few steps away from the Oval Office, the President's formal workspace.

O'Brien, whom Trump tapped to lead the agency in September 2019 after the ousting of John Bolton, recently returned from Europe, where he met with officials from the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy. Multiple photos released from the trip showed that O'Brien had neither practiced social distancing nor worn a mask.

The White House recently ended regular temperature checks for all those entering the White House complex, but those who will come into close contact with Trump are still given rapid tests.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said during a briefing last week that Trump tested "often."

"As I've made clear from this podium, the president is the most tested man in America," McEnany told reporters at the White House. "He's tested more than anyone, multiple times a day, and we believe that he's acting appropriately."

However, Trump has dismissed McEnany's claim that he takes more than one test a day.

"I didn't know about more than one. I do take probably, on average, a test every two days, three days," he told reporters during a White House press briefing last week. "I don't know of any time I've taken two tests in one day, but I could see that happening."

Last week, a cafeteria employee working in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is close to the White House, tested positive for coronavirus, as did a U.S. Marine assigned to Trump's helicopter squadron ahead of the president's planned trip to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Previously, one of Trump's military valets and Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary tested positive for the virus.
