Is a face shield better than a mask against CORVID-19?

    Those plastic shields? Doubt it. They could help medical workers from direct contact, but if the virus is projected into the air via coughing, etc, those face shields do not enclose your face so the open sides are not going to help you as you'll still just breathe it right in. Why those N95 masks are so important because they enclose the nose and mouth and filter the air that is breathed in and the N95 material can block particles as small as the virus.
