National security adviser Jake Sullivan tests positive for Covid

WASHINGTON — White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday, according to the National Security Council.

“He is asymptomatic and he has not been in close contact with the President,” NSC spokesperson Adrienne Watson said in a statement.

Sullivan met with Senegalese Foreign Minister Aïssata Tall Sall on Friday to discuss Russia’s war in Ukraine and its impact on food security in Africa, as well as the need to keep global food and fertilizer markets functioning, the White House said in a statement.

He also held “substantive and productive” talks with Chinese Communist Party foreign affairs chief Yang Jiechi last Monday in Europe, a senior administration official said.
