A New Face Shield in the Town

A face mask to cover the nose and mouth is the first and biggest piece of equipment to deal with coronavirus as it is the way the virus enters the body. The virus mainly attacks the respiratory system and thus includes facial masks. There is, however, a scarcity of face masks in the world, and other countries needing aid. Though most of us use the handmade masks in most situations to defend ourselves against the hideous virus. In this sense, DRDO has created a complete face shield in partnership with Wipro 3D to be given to doctors and medical staff dealing with patients with coronavirus, which aims to prevent them from being directly infected
