Canada’s fight against the novel coronavirus has left front-line health-care workers exhausted and concerned over shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE).

PPE is the equipment needed by health-care staff to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 — in this case, surgical masks, face shields, fluid-repellent medical gowns, N95 masks, goggles and latex gloves.

Health-care professionals have said they’ve been forced to ration and are sounding the alarm: without proper protection, they can’t protect the public.

China produces the majority of the world’s supply of personal protective equipment. When the COVID-19 pandemic erupted and China closed many of its factories, the global supply chain was severely disrupted.
