Free Lenses for Healthcare Workers to Fight Coronavirus
With the current number of COVID-19 cases, reaching 1 million cases, the US has the highest number of cases worldwide. Being extremely worried and looking for the best way to protect yourselves is highly expected.
As the number of infections is still rising, more protective measures to prevent the spread of the virus are VITAL.
The coronavirus outbreak has taken tens of thousands of lives. The use of protective equipment is the best means of saving lives as of now. The person to person transmission of this virus from patients with COVID-19 has to be reduced and is a priority globally.
The respiratory droplets are the main way of the COVID-19 outbreak spread worldwide, as well as in the United States. Coughs or sneezes as the main way of respiratory droplets’ dispersion, using face masks as well as glasses is one of the steps to making sure the virus is not contracted.
CDC and WHO have been advising to use PPE equipment at all times, especially first responders, medical staff and all those in direct contact with people.
One of the measures to protect yourself from contracting COVID-19 is also staying home. With more countries imposing the physical distancing as a measure to reduce the curve, staying at home has become the defacto measure beside the PPE in stopping the virus spread.
We Salute all medical staff, first responders, volunteers, and brave workers helping across the world.
