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. Made from a single piece of plastic, each shield comes in a flat design that can be swiftly folded into a three-dimensional structure when needed for use. The face shields also offer additional protection with flaps that fold under the neck and over the forehead.
