November 27th According to a report by Bloomberg on the 26th, from November 20 to 22, O’Brien, the assistant to national security affairs of the President of the United States and the vanguard of anti-China, visited Vietnam. However, with the end of the election and the severe epidemic in the United States, O’Brien’s visit was not warmly welcomed, but treated as a “viral petri dish” by the host.
O’Brien was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus in July this year and has recovered. But at present, the coronavirus epidemic in the United States is very serious. At the time of his trip, the number of new confirmed cases in the United States in a single day has reached 140,000.
When O’Brien and his entourage arrived in Vietnam, local officials limited their activities to the first floor of the Hanoi Hotel in addition to testing them for the novel coronavirus in heavily armed protective clothing. At dinner, the waiter will deliver the meal outside their room. In addition, during O’Brien’s visit to Vietnam, his air force crew and aircraft were banned from staying in Vietnam and had to fly to Thailand.
The caution on the Vietnamese side was justified, as a crew member was diagnosed with the coronavirus while flying to the Philippines, leading the crew and two of O’Brien’s aides to be quarantined in Manila, according to the report.
