Covid-19: "Hi-So" face shields on their own are pointless, says leading Thai public health official

Recommended Posts

We've made some nice carbon hi-so face shields to trump any others out there. None of that common plastic <deleted>. Sends out a statement that I'm sporty, modern, rich and hi-so  😉

Fun fact
People here like to wear these to try and protect them from a virus, but when they are trimming/cutting grass they don't bother. 
Seems like going blind is less of and issue than catching a virus... 

Don't wear one when they are welding just a pair of Chinese Ray-Ban copies

i am saving up for a face lift, not a face mask. 

Pull that third chin right up

No locally transmitted cases in Thailand now, so why the need to carry on wearing face masks and visors. How long is this going for, until no cases worldwide.

i disagree. There is a point. The idea of wearing the HI-SO face shield is to show others that you are Hi-So.

He reiterated that people should continue to wear surgical masks or cloth masks whenever they go out to stop the spread of the coronavirus. 

The holes in those masks look like the Grand Canyon to the typical virus.
Just about as much protection as those face shield.  All this PPE is simply applied placebo.

The noun ' pointless ' could be used to describe alot of the current measures in Thailand

Yes but it's the appearance that counts.

 

Actually I think the full-guard ensemble is actually a Marxist plot, to get rid of as many self-appointed hi-sos as possible. Good thing too.

He said this offered no protection at all and he strongly advised against it.

No one in the world knows enough about this virus. We are told that cloth masks and surgical masks don't do enough to stop the particles, only the N95 masks properly filter everything, but this doctor says wearing cloth or surgical masks is fine; we are told that transmission can also be through the eyes, but the doctor says a face shield doesn't help at all, only a mask - which he overlooks cause it does not protect the eyes. It seems like to make things smoother, just do what the government says on that day, cause like everywhere in the world, people still don't know enough.

A lot of experts saying a lot of things with no proof or facts .How about backing up all these comical regulation and rules with some research.? Just reading the daily list of expert opinions is a total head spin .

You were not talking rubbish at all. Aerosols escape from under this shield. The statement of this Thai doctor is exactly what doctors worldwide say. You need a mask as well. Singapore school kids wear shield and mask.

I bet you have an impressive wardrobe of yellow vests The richer, "hiso" folk probably

don't do a lot of strumming or other manual labour, so not really an issue.
