WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien has recovered from the novel coronavirus disease and is back at work in the White House, media reported on Tuesday citing an administration official.

The Politico report said O'Brien was allowed to return to work at the White House after testing negative for COVID-19 two consecutive times and a week of showing no symptoms.

On 27 July, the White House said O'Brien tested positive for COVID-19 and exhibited mild symptoms. He contracted the disease during a vacation with his family.
