White House consultant Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an interview with INS on Wednesday that in addition to wearing a mask, you must also wear goggles to protect against the coronavirus. Dr. Fauci proposed: "Theoretically, all mucosal surfaces on your body can transmit the virus, including your nose, mouth and eyes. Therefore, if you have goggles, you should wear them."
At present, the rules surrounding ordinary people wearing goggles have not yet been determined, but studies have shown that wearing goggles can reduce the possibility of medical staff being infected. When protecting your eyes during a pandemic, you need to know the following:
Under what circumstances should I wear goggles?
According to doctors’ understanding of the coronavirus, cases of infection through the eyes of the virus are not common. However, it makes sense to wear a mask wherever you are in contact with others for a long time.
For flight attendants, medical staff and hair stylist, goggles should be worn to protect their eyes. Most airlines also announced that flight attendants must wear goggles, and all medical staff must wear goggles in hospitals.
What kind of goggles should I wear?
As Fauci said, if you have goggles, you should wear them. So, what kind of eye is suitable?
Standard eyes or sunglasses can provide some protection, but because the aerosol can still enter the top, bottom and side openings, it is not foolproof. The mask works because it protects the nose and mouth. The remaining eyes are the most susceptible to infection. Therefore, in order to protect the eyes, the Centers for Disease Control also stated that “goggles should be close to the eyes, especially from the corners of the eyebrows.”
In the end, what you can do is continue to wear masks and goggles (KIEYYUEL currently produces all kinds of masks and goggles), maintain social distancing, wash your hands frequently, and avoid touching your face as much as possible.
