Face Shields Are An Achievable Way To Provide Protections That COVID-19 Demands

The COVID-19 pandemic presents monumental challenges. A newly emerged virus to which the world’s population has no immunity, coupled with the speedy movement of individuals across the globe, has set the stage for an outbreak of proportions not seen within the last century.

For infection with this virus to happen, it should come into contact with the eyes, nose, or mouth. This occurs when droplets produced by an infected person (through speaking, coughing or sneezing), land on the face of another person. These infectious droplets can journey up to 6 toes, which is the reason to promote social distancing. Touching a surface that's contaminated with infectious droplets and then touching one’s own eyes, nose or mouth, is another way for an infection to occur. Subsequently, the key to avoiding an infection is to have these areas of the face covered.


In hospitals, face masks and goggles are typically used to stop exposure to infectious droplets. Nonetheless, face mask shortages are occurring because of interruptions in the provide chain, which is deeply rooted in China and disrupted by the pandemic. Some health care workers have been forced to resort to scarves and bandannas in a final-ditch try to protect themselves while providing care. Even when plentiful, face masks usually are not without problems. As soon as they turn into wet from the humidity in exhaled air, they lose effectiveness. In addition, some individuals contact their face more usually to adjust the masks, which increases the risk of an infection if the fingers are contaminated.

Material masks, though higher than nothing, have been shown to be less protective than medical-grade face masks.

We believe that face shields provide a better solution. There are a lot of types, but all use clear plastic material connected to a headpiece to cover the eyes, nose and mouth, thereby preventing infectious droplets from contacting these areas the place the virus can enter the body. They cover more of the face than masks and prevent the wearer from touching their face. Importantly, face shields are durable, may be cleaned after use, reused repeatedly, and for many people are more comfortable than face masks. Because these shields are reusable and are diversified across the provision chains of a number of industries, the current supply is less limited than for face masks. They will even be made at dwelling with gadgets from office provide and craft stores.

Each health care worker wants a face shield for protection at work. While face masks are still needed in some situations, implementation of face shields will enormously reduce the need for face masks and prolong the limited nationwide provide of masks. Engineers have produced designs for face shields which are in the public domain, and fabrication at scale is relatively simple. To ensure that every health care worker has a face shield, production might want to ramp up to meet the demand by current producers and recruitment of additional factories. Because the design is straightforward, massive speedy production would not be difficult.

As soon as the health care workpower is supplied, distribution to the public ought to begin, with a goal to provide a face shield to every particular person within the country. It must be worn anytime a person leaves their dwelling, while in any public place, and even at work. Although shelter-at-residence approaches are wanted to "bend the curve" of this pandemic, the following societal disruption limits the time that political leaders are prepared to sustain such measures. As soon as every individual is shielded, nonetheless, reducing restrictions on movement would carry less risk. Universal shielding might reduce reliance on social distancing since infectious droplets can not reach the face of inclined individuals. Handwashing, however, would stay essential to keep individuals from infecting themselves with virus found on the palms after touching contaminated surfaces.
