CLEVELAND — 23 additional cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Cleveland, and officials confirm one of the new patients is just 10 years old.
COVID-19's harshest impact has mostly been reserved for older patients or those dealing with pre-existing health issues, but their have still been 10 hospitalizations in Ohio among people younger than 20. Cleveland now has 282 cases of the virus (more than all but five whole counties in the state), ranging in age from at least one infant to people in their 90s.
The city's death toll remains at two, and no residents have died of the disease in more than a week. Cuyahoga County as a whole currently has 22 confirmed coronavirus deaths, more than any county except Mahoning (31).
In its daily update, the city added that its Division of Fire currently has N95 medical masks in stock, and although some are technically expired they remain serviceable per Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines. Mayor Frank G. Jackson's administration says it placed orders for more masks in January, but it is unknown at this time when the masks will arrive.
Cleveland and the rest of Ohio remain under a stay-at-home order from Gov. Mike DeWine through at least May 1.
