Anthony Fauci, a leading expert in infectious diseases, said this week that wearing glasses or an eye shield next to a face mask is reportedly provided to provide more complete protection against coronavirus.
“Theoretically, you should protect all mucosal surfaces [eyes, nose, mouth], so if you have goggles or an eye shield, you should wear them, “he told ABC News on Instagram Wednesday.
Centers for disease control and prevention already recommend wearing a face mask in public that covers the nose and mouth, but the virus can also get through the eyes.
In addition to the face mask, Fauci recommended goggles for those who want “perfect protection”; from COVID-19, but admitted that it is not “generally recommended.”
He added that one of the reasons why glasses are not yet recommended is “it is so easy for people to make a cloth mask.”
According to Fauci, in the autumn he encourages people to get the flu vaccine and hopes that the masks will protect people from the flu and coronavirus.
Not everyone responded favorably on social media to the idea of adding glasses to their faces. Some have noted that the next step, according to Gambling Watches, will be suits made of matte materials or living in a bubble.
