MIT develops emergency Covid-19 face shields from single sheets of plastic



Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have begun mass-producing disposable face shields for medical workers fighting Covid-19, which come flat-packed and can be folded into shape.

In a bid to meet the increasing demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) amid the coronavirus pandemic, a team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have designed disposable face shields that can be rapidly mass produced.
