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 .

A good logical comment. Refreshing.

Dr Fauci has said on tv they are acceptable as a replacement for a face mask as long as they go below the chin and back to just in front of the ears and this a man who knows what he is talking about .

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

Human nature. Even in crisis, people feel the need to differentiate themselves to show they are ‘better’.

An increasing number of people have been seen out in Bangkok wearing just shields - many look more like a fashion statement and are being worn by those that can obviously afford what they mistakenly believe is a better form of protection against infection.

Fashion statement over health protection... bit like the whole beauty business..

How about just putting a clear plastic bag over their head ?  Just waiting for that fashion to catch on.

Shields are great when performing a pelvic examination or an autopsy to prevent those bodily fluids and bone chips getting in your face...So always be prepared....

Maybe he should turn on the TV as several local programs and game shows are using these face shields only.

Then why are health workers in US and UK wearing them.

they can stop infections that can enter via the eyes,but what

do I know,compared to Thai health spokesman.

regards Worgeordie

i agree, the virus can get in through your eyes so a shield logically offers more protection then a cloth face mask that does not protect the eyes. also a cloth face mask is porous whereas a plastic shield is not... go figure,,, seems scientists / professionals just cant seem to agree a consistemt message...

There’s no way a virus gets through the plastic face shield. It will project your whole face eyes included. But of course it won’t deter people from touching their faces which is a big problem with them.

It’s a splash guard. Unless people are going around coughing and sneezing in other people’s faces, your regular face mask is fine. 

trying to be as a splash guard would be its only weakness... mainly for those splashes travelling vertically from a puddle 

 

and much like how a horn was an olde way of directing Sound

- with the pictured face shield; a downwind wet cough from behind, could be channeled forward and bounced around into your face! 

 - a virtual plastic waveguide
