Eleven members of the US Secret Service have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Thursday evening, according to Yahoo News.
Documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seen by Yahoo News, revealed that the agency has 11 active coronavirus cases and an additional 60 employees who are reportedly self-quarantining. On top of this, another 23 members have already recovered from COVID-19, the diseases caused by the coronavirus.
It is not known whether the employees who tested positive for the coronavirus worked at the White House or if they had recent close contact with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.
Both Trump and Pence get tested for the disease regularly but have not tested positive so far. However, Trump said this week that he would switch from having weekly to daily tests following the new cases, according to The Hill.
Justin Whelan, a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Yahoo News that the agency is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
"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," Whelan added.
The news comes as President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that Mike Pence's press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus. Miller, who is the wife of Stephen Miller Trump's senior adviser, and primary speechwriter confirmed her diagnosis with NBC News, adding that she was asymptomatic.
Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has also tested positive for the coronavirus, CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported.

We are attacked by a ChiCom bio-weapon, and our first instinct is to attack other Americans, ie, “who snuck it to the SS?” and not the ChiComs who launched the attack.
The fact is, we are an open society, and the ChiComs knew this would give them a huge advantage during the pandemic they launched on the world.
USSS agents are part of our open society. They go home to wives and children, they shop at the grocery store. They can get infected same as anybody.
OTOH, the ChiCom leadership will only use staff who are in total isolation quarantine, and do not face the same risk that Trump and our White House face.
I wish we’d turn our anger to the ChiComs who launched this bio-war, instead of against fellow Americans.
Our disunity is China’s victory.
There you go, attacking other Americans instead of the ChiComs who launched the bio-war.
Anecdotes are what you get right now. ..but i am all for everyone going out right now and getting it. Meanwhile..i will stay home until they get this figured out
Maybe you getting it and being one that crashes will help this virus mutate
It’s not a given that it’s FATAL, is it??
Calm down, media.
Just noticed...Business Insider...it has an agenda.
You better hope you dont get the strain that this virus Dr got
Will Covid-19 survivors face a lifetime of illness? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-8303305/Will-Covid-19-survivors-face-lifetime-illness-like-battled-polio
This tabloid quotes the WHO...also, I have not heard the good doctor confirmed to have or nor taking a test.
Grain of salt.
Youre absolutely right..100% agree, but from what we are
learning from the way some blue state leaders are handling things, who can totally dismiss anything?
So 11/(3200+1300+2000)*329MM=557k cases grossed up to national proportions. The USA has 1.3MM total cases, meaning the Secret Services is way less infected than the nation as a whole.
I think you should attend one of those corona parties where people intentionally get it. Please do. Then document how your body deals with it for us.
I'm attacking the chicom fifth columnist who are aiding the destruction of America with their fear mongering. If the recognition that the term describes you - tough sh*t.
Nobody is going to win a war against the stinkin' chinee by rolling over on their backs in trembling submission like frightened dachshunds in masks and peeing on their own stomachs.
Also, you are destroying the lives and livelihoods of my fellow Americans. Knock it off. If you want to hide in the basement, go ahead. But get the f_k out of the way.
We need tbis virus to mutate. It will. But people like you need to make it happen. Hold a corona virus party with someone who is infected
How many of your family will you invite to get Corona
You just can’t help but attack Americans, instead of the ChiComs who launched the pandemic bio-war.
To flu-bros, if you’re not a flu-bro, you are part of some chicom fifth column.
Don’t you see the stupidity of the tautology your mind is trapped inside?
This is a pure ChiCom victory. They launch a bio-war, and we attack....each other.
Someone infected the team purposely, in an atmosphere we have today how can we think otherwise
That’s a great point.
The flu-bros should all have Corona parties in tight quarters, so they can gain rapid herd immunity, and show us what a nothing-burger Covid-19 is.
Can’t wait to hear their results.
We are attacked by the ChiComs with a bio-weapon, and we attack....each other.
Um that is drain. Not a faucet
IT rains on the just and the unjust.
If you walk in the you will get wet.
They act like they are all going to die. There is treatment and almost everyone recovers. This is not EBOLA. I’m so sick of the fear mongering.
Anecdotal....never heard of this before.
