According to the Washington Post, more than 130 employees of the US Secret Service, in particular, responsible for protecting the country’s top leadership, were infected with a coronavirus infection or were in close contact with infected colleagues.
Sources of the publication on anonymity condition said that this outbreak resulted from large-scale campaign rallies of Trump and his trips around the country. Dozens of Secret Service employees were involved in each of the events to ensure the President’s security.
As a result, about 10% of these special service employees were ordered to go to quarantine.
The US Secret Service declined to comment on the situation.
