However, while speaking at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 today June 25, Ihekweazu said from available knowledge, Face shields are not sufficient to protect against the virus. He said in addition to Face shields, people should also put on a mask.

”There has been an increasing use of face shield to protect the population from the transmission of COVID19. Today I would like to advice that face shields are great but they should used in addition to face mask and not in place of face masks.

From what we know at the moment, Face shield is not sufficient to protect ourselves and the population. So we can gradually over the next few days evolve out of face shields and back to masks” he said
