Recommended Posts

We all know in the woke up of this covid 19 pandemic most of the countries have been in the lockdown situation and everything has stopped in lockdown. 

We have been here before. Almost. A long time ago, in 1918, the Spanish Flu infected 500 million people and killed an estimated 10-50 million, devastating the global economy.

A century later, the world was supposedly making massive progress and scientists focusing on higher order problems — like blurring the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds. Armed with path-breaking tools such as gene editing, AI and big data, human beings were learning to play god, creating designer babies and disrupting death.

Over 120 countries — from developed nations such as the US and Italy to developing ones such as India and Iran — are reeling from its attack.

We have to learn to live with the virus now

At first, when not many instances of the coronavirus disease were accounted for from different places everywhere throughout the world, the utilization of face masks for the overall population was not suggested. Face masks were to be utilized by clinical experts, or individuals who had side effects of the disease. However, as new data about the infection began to come in, it was discovered that asymptomatic individuals might be driving the spread of the virus and the virus droplets could spread further than the 6 feet distance in any case set by governments all around the globe. 

As the viral spread expanded in scale, governments everywhere throughout the world, began to make face masks essential for the whole gang, when in an open space. On the off chance that specialists are to be accepted, masks may, actually, remain around for significantly longer than the infection, in any event, when the pandemic wave is finished. 

Individuals in the world over are attempting to shield themselves from the novel coronavirus pandemic. What's more, despite the fact that the World Health Organization has exhorted wearing a clinical face mask, worldwide deficiencies have provoked some to rather utilize a PVC face shield. 

Albeit various plans are currently accessible, the face shield is basically a mask made of PVC or plastic that is put on the head and covers a huge piece of the face. Doctors and nursing staff once in a while wear it when they come in contact with patients. 

The face shield is simpler to purge than fabric masks, and doesn't cause trouble in relaxing. It additionally helps stop the propensity for contacting the face, nose, mouth and eyes, and permits others to see outward appearances and lip development, which encourages discussion. 

Face shield gives an extra layer of security for the uncovered pieces of the face, similar to the eyes, which can't be canvassed when one is in close contact with patients and suspects. 

In spite of the defensive job that face shields play in the lives of clinical staff, the overall population doesn't discuss legitimately with patients like specialists and medical attendants do, so they don't have to utilize one. 

They should simply focus on wearing a face mask when going out or being in packed spots. They likewise need to their wash hands altogether with cleanser and water when they wear a mask

Groups that can wear a face shield:

Children twelve years and below, who may have difficulty wearing and keeping face masks on for a prolonged period of time;
Persons with health conditions that may result in breathing or other medical difficulties when a mask is worn for a prolonged period of time; and
Persons who are speaking to a group in a classroom or lecture-style setting, where they largely remain at the spot from which they are speaking, and are able to maintain a safe distance away from any other persons.
Continue to stay home, stay safe

All are still advised to stay at home and avoid going out where possible.

Those who need to go out should continue to wear masks and take preventive measures such as hand hygiene and safe distancing to help reduce and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Flexibility in enforcement will continue for groups that may have difficulties wearing a face mask or shield. These include children with special needs and young children aged two and above. In particular, mask-wearing is not recommended for young children below the age of two for safety reasons.

As more activities and services gradually resume, all should play their part by wearing masks, observing good personal hygiene, and adhering to safe distancing and safe management measures.
