The American Secret Service has long provided protection to members of the government; putting their lives on the line for politicians. They expose themselves to far more than germs, but even they are not immune to the coronavirus, which has made its way into every nook in the nation.

Now, news has broken that reveals that the secret service has been hit hard by the virus, with 11 active cases at the moment. Yahoo News reported:

“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.”

Secret Service spokesperson Justine Whelan gave the following statement to the media:

“To protect the privacy of our employee’s health information and for operational security, the Secret Service is not releasing how many of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19, nor how many of its employees were, or currently are, quarantined.”
