CLEVELAND — As Cuyahoga County remains the county with the most confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state, health officials and city leaders are working to obtain more medical supplies such as personal protective equipment (PPE).

County officials have authorized as much money as they need to get PPE to the people on the front lines fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the problem is that there’s a shortage of PPE throughout the country.
