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


Recommended Posts

A face shield does not replace a mask...they are protecting parts of the body....

 

from a Hospital perspective only a respirator (Not surgical masks) is proven against airborne illness for respiratory protection...

 

face shield is to protect the eyes and skin from blood or bodily fluid splashes...

 

doctors and nurses will wear a surgical mask and face shield in operations if they anticipate a splash from body part or fluid due to type of procedure...

 

rarely HC providers will perform surgery on known airborne infectious patients where an approved osha respirator would be required...

 

common procedures dealing with an airborne illness would require at a minimum a N-95 and a face shield if a splash is anticipated or likely...

 

Another option is safety glasses in a clinical setting but will say face shields over the last 20 years seem to be the preferred choice over old-fashion safety glasses/goggles...

 

Human skin is the best natural barrier we have if the skin is whole and healthy...

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’.

Then why are they dying by the thousands everyday for months in both US and UK? Maybe the good Thai doctor actually knows a little more compared to you?

Complete and utter rubbish. it is not a joke people are dying so keep this nonsense to yourself, very childish comment. Do your research if you want to know why people are dying in the western world.

 

The shield is a better cover then a mask as it is not porous, however wearing with a face mask will be extra protection but the reality is if you want to completely protect yourself and others you need a fully sealed affair such as a hasmat suit.

It is not a bacterial infection, it is a virus, antibiotics are useless. Therefore it is not curable with aspro and antibiotics, do you not think the hospitals would have worked that out by now.. Do your research for crying out loud...

ok, except coronavirus is not an airborne virus. 

the face masks used in surgery are to protect the doctor contaminating the patient, not the other way around. So the surgical masks everybody uses are basically to protect others not yourself really.

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  😉

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

The face shields cost about 20-30 baht. Less than many masks cost.

Plenty of prominent doctors, virologists, biochemists and nurses say that even masks are pointless, because virus (if it is present) is so tiny that no such mask is able stop it. Mask might protect from bacteries but not from viruses. And if Covid is a virus then masks are really useless. Recently even the WHO admitted that masks don't need to be worn by healthy individuals.
