Trump’s National Security Adviser Tests Positive for COVID-19

Robert O’Brien, national security adviser to President Trump, has tested positive for the coronavirus, the White House said 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 vice president. The work of the National Security Council continues uninterrupted.”

Bloomberg News first reported O’Brien’s illness, saying he got it after a family event.

O’Brien has become the highest-ranking known member of the Trump administration to test positive for the virus. Senior staff of the administration and anyone who has close contact with the president and vice president are tested for the coronavirus every day.

More than 4.2 million people worldwide have been infected with the coronavirus as of Monday, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
