Do you think one is more protected using the face shield?
Face shield are a layer of clear of clear plastic that is fastened at the forehead in a headband style. The actual plastic covers the entire face and usually extends below the chin.
In a post made by ncdc in their official Facebook page, reminding the populace to always wear a mask and practice frequent hand washing, respiratory hygiene and physical distancing for adequate protection added that using a face shield without a face mask is not advisable. A face shield alone cannot prevent the spread of infectious disease like Corona-virus.
Also, a molecular biology expert, Dr. Christian Happi, a Professor of genomics and director of the African Center of Excellence for Genomics of infectious disease at Redeemer's University explained that a face shield does not guarantee the same level of protection against Covid-19 as a face mask.
Therefore, make sure you use both your nose mask and Face mask to ensure maximum protection.
