Many people know that the virus is spread mainly through respiratory droplets. When people talk or sneez, droplets will inevitably occur. Wearing masks and face shields is to prevent droplets from entering your mouth and nose, and to prevent you from being infected by viruses. However, the virus may also be transmitted through the eyes. Infectious disease expert and microbiologist Stephen Berger, MD, said that in theory the virus can reach the eyes and spread down through our tear ducts to the nose and throat. Although this statement has been confirmed, it is only a suspected mode of transmission, but for doctors treating patients, maximum protection is necessary. So after they wear masks, they wear viewfinder to ensure safety.
Wearing a face shield can effectively prevent these viruses from entering your mouth, nose, and eyes, thereby avoiding your infection. Another advantage of wearing a face shield is that because of wearing a visor, it is not easy for people to touch their faces, thus avoiding the spread of the virus. Touching the face may also be infected by the virus. At the same time, for some people, physical protection can make them feel safer.Unlike the mask that needs to be thrown away after use, the face shield can be used repeatedly. When you finish using the face shield, you only need to clean the face shield to continue using it next time.
Now that you know the reasons and benefits of wearing a face shield, how do we wear a viewfinder correctly? The transparent plastic mask of your face shield should cover your entire face and extend to your two ears. And the lowest part of the transparent plastic mask of the viewfinder should be far below your chin. There should be no gap between your forehead and the sponge head protector of the face shield. Sponge head protector should be close to the skin of your forehead to prevent bacteria from contacting your skin.
When you are ready to remove the face shield, you cannot touch the front of the transparent plastic face shield, because it protects you from many bacteria. You just need to loosen the elastic band to remove the face shield. After removing the face shield, wipe the visor with soapy water or alcohol. Pay special attention to the cleanliness of the transparent plastic face shield of the visor. There may be bacteria on it. Wearing and cleaning the face shield correctly can make it play the best protective function, thereby protecting the health of you and others.
