Danish toy company LEGO has announced that it is taking on the challenge of providing protective equipment for medical workers as PPE remains in short supply around the world.
Viruses primarily enter the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth. While masks cover the nose and mouth, some kind of barrier is needed to keep droplets from coughs or sneezes from reaching the eyes. That's why face shields are in high demand and why LEGO is using its plastic manufacturing expertise to create clear plastic visors for medical workers in Denmark.
