The Oklahoma State Department of Health confirmed Tuesday that positive cases of the coronavirus in the state now stand at 565, an increase of 84 cases from Monday. That's a 17 percent increase in total cases.
47 of Oklahoma's 77 counties are reporting positive cases of COVID-19. Oklahoma County has the most number of cases with 155. Tulsa County has 83, Cleveland County has 65, Kay County has 24 and Washington County and Creek County each have 21.

Oklahoma health officials confirm the state has received 60 percent of its personal protective equipment from the federal government’s Strategic National Stockpile. Items received include gloves, gowns, face and eye protection, and surgical and N95 masks.

Despite a national shortage of personal protective equipment, officials anticipate Oklahoma to be completely stocked by the end of the week due to a multi-million dollar order placed on the private market.
