The DIY ventilator scene is exploding; I have so many bookmarks saved about them that I need a while just to go through them. Anyway, today let's look at homemade face shields.
Grocery stores are starting to install shields to protect cashiers. And we're seeing fewer and fewer photos of emergency medical responders without face shields. We know that covid can be transmitted via droplets into someone's eyes. But goggles fog up. And, infected droplets anywhere on your face is dangerous.
There's also a significant risk of transmission to healthcare workers who are performing coronavirus tests. There are different ways to test, but some of them involve sticking a probe deep down someone's throat or up their nose, and this is making patients involuntarily cough, thus infecting healthcare workers.
2-liter soda bottles are great for DIY face shields. Here's one by Alex-Kirkpatrick. 0:58 video:
