As the number of TSA employees infected with coronavirus continues to climb at alarming rates, Homeland Security officials plan to provide the workers with expired N95 respirator masks found inside a U.S. government warehouse in Indiana.

On Friday, the TSA reported that at least 32 screening officers and 10 non-screening employees in 14 states have tested positive for COVID-19.

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that authorities found nearly 1.5 million N95 respirators found in an Indiana warehouse. They were part of CBP’s emergency supplies.

The respirators will not be donated to hospitals that have run out of them.

The Missouri man killed during a shootout with the FBI on Tuesday was a suspected white supremacist who was in contact with a then-active U.S. Army solder who was planning his own attack, according to the FBI.

More details have emerged about 36-year-old Timothy Wilson, who was “espoused white supremacist” and “made a threat that if any agent attempted to [search his property] they should ‘bring a lot of body bags,” according to the FBI alert obtained by ABC News.

Wilson was planning to soon try to detonate a bomb at a Kansas City-area medical center that was busy handling coronavirus patients.

According to the FBI alert, Wilson had “shared instructions on how to make an” improvised explosive device with another domestic terrorism suspect near Kansas City.

That suspect was Jarrett Smith, whom the FBI arrested in September 2019 for allegedly discussing a plot to bomb a major news network and attack then-Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, ABC News reports.

The FBI had been investigating Wilson for more than a year.
