The COVID-19 pandemic continues to get closer to President Donald Trump according new documents obtained by Yahoo News.
“In March, the Secret Service, which is responsible for the protection of President Trump and other leaders, acknowledged that a single employee tested positive in March. However the problem is currently far more widespread, with 11 active cases at the agency as of Thursday evening, according to a daily report compiled by the DHS,” the publication reported.
“According to the DHS document, along with the 11 active cases there are 23 members of the Secret Service who have recovered from COVID-19 and an additional 60 employees who are self-quarantining. No details have been provided about which members of the Secret Service are infected or if any have recently been on detail with the president or vice president,” Yahoo News explained.
And even after White House coronavirus testing was ramped up after Trump's valet and Katie Miller tested positive, the press pool was brought into a room with the president without being tested this afternoon https://t.co/VEkuD3FroJ
