Dozens of Trump Security Guards Quarantined After Tulsa Rally
Dozens of members of the United States Secret Service, the agency that protects the President of the United States, are being quarantined.
That precaution was taken after two Secret Service agents who were at President Donald Trump’s campaign meeting in Tulsa tested positive for the new coronavirus. CNN reports this based on insiders.
An email to Secret Service agents shows that all members accompanying Trump in the coming weeks will be tested regularly. The tests will take place between 48 and 24 hours before the President’s mission. The policy is at least until July 4.
On Monday it turned out that two campaign members, who were at the rally in Tulsa, also had the virus among the members during the meeting.
A few hours before the event, it appeared that six other team members had tested positive for corona. These were employees who had prepared for the meeting.
Trump garnered a wave of criticism for holding a mass rally during the corona crisis. He considers such manifestations with thousands of supporters of great importance in his efforts to be reelected in November.
At the rally in Tulsa, hardly anyone wore a face mask, and no distance was kept. The hall was not fully occupied.
