New York's Joe Doucet has designed a less "uncomfortable and awkward" face shield to protect against coronavirus that could be worn like a pair of sunglasses.
Doucet's conceptual design comprises a curved, see-through guard that fronts a dark sunglass lenses and arms. The minimal shield would be put on like a pair of glasses.
Face shields are an effective way to protect the eyes, nose and mouth from Covid-19 infection. They are typically used in conjunction with masks and limited to frontline medical workers who are most at risk of infection. But they could become more commonly worn by the general public as outbreaks continue.
