Covid-19: Face Shield or Face Mask?

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, World Health Organisation, W.H.O, recommended the use of face mask or shield to curb the spread of the disease.

Also, the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, on April 27th mandated the use of face masks or covering in public places in view of the ways in which the virus is being transmitted from one person to the other.
