However, now the situation is much more serious, according to Yahoo News, citing documents from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
According to these documents, in addition to 11 active cases of a new coronavirus infection, 23 Secret Service employees have already recovered from COVID-19, and another 60 employees are on self-isolation.

The Ministry of Homeland Security, which includes the Secret Service, redirected all questions directly to it. Representatives of the Secret Service, in turn, declined to comment on the number of patients with the new coronavirus among its employees.
On the eve it was reported that a new coronavirus was detected in an employee of the office of the vice president of the United States – presumably this is Spokeswoman Katie Miller. A day earlier, a coronavirus was found in one of Presidential Trump’s aides.
