A Life Changing Experience
The COVID-19 has quickly spread throughout the world and has changed in our daily lives and the way we interact with other people. As cities shut down and people engage in social distancing, our tech has become essential to connect with others at a time of isolation. The impact will be long-lasting:

Seeing the effect on the internet, in terms of traffic patterns that are shifting. People are accessing more educational resources online for their kids, finding unconventional ways to connect with coworkers, friends, and family. Employers are being more flexible in how they respond to employee needs through more dynamic, cloud-based technology. We’ve seen these shifts last well beyond the immediate fallout of the COVID-19 outbreak.
As the coronavirus pandemic rapidly sweeps across the world, it is inducing a considerable degree of fear, worry,and concern in the population at large and among certain groups in particular, such as older adults, care providers and people with underlying health conditions.
In public mental health terms, the main psychological impact to date is elevated rates of stress or anxiety. But as new measures and impacts are introduced – especially quarantine and its effects on many people’s usual activities, routines or livelihoods – levels of loneliness, depression.
And because of this, people are getting more conscious of there safety by using some Personal Protective Equipment or PPE.
Surgical masks are an extremely valuable piece of PPE within the current COVID-19 pandemic. At Mass General, every person is required to wear a surgical mask upon entering the hospital because it can help trap droplets and prevent the spread of disease when the mask wearer coughs or sneezes. It can also protect staff from exposure to asymptomatic staff or patients who may not have been identified as having COVID-19. The mask must be discarded upon leaving, which means maintaining a sufficient supply is crucial for these facilities.

Importance of Face Shield
They provide greater facial surface area coverage than face masks by protecting all the facial mucosal surfaces from infectious droplets. Given that the eyes are protected, we can eliminate the need for goggles when a face mask is worn. And we know that healthcare workers are really bad at wearing eye protection. They prevent you from touching your face. One of the major drawbacks of face masks is that some people will touch their faces even more to adjust the mask and this poses a risk for autoinoculation by contaminated hands.
Face shields are durable, can be cleaned after use, and reused repeatedly. Communication is better with shield than with face masks as your face is visible to patients and coworkers. If all of your healthcare workers are shielded, social distancing becomes less important. And importantly, this is a device that is diversified across other industries. There is greater availability since the medical supply chain is so stressed at this time.
