    Masks have an advantage over face shields in terms of protecting persons from the COVID-19 virus.

    This was laid out today by Principal Medical Officer of Health for Epidemiology, Dr Naresh Nandram, following a question about persons who may not be able to wear a mask.

    He was speaking during the Health Ministry’s briefing this morning.

    Dr Nandram also commented the assumption that persons are less able to breathe properly while wearing a mask.

    He says while many people believe this, it isn’t necessarily the case.
