Importers and wholesalers association of Ghana, face shield wing today, 28th August, 2020 donates 1000 face shield to Ghana Medical Association (Korlebu).

Mrs. Dolores Lanquaye, a member of the association who led the donation noted that, according to research they have realized that a lot of Frontline health workers contact the Covid-19 through the eye and due to that, they want to add to their protections.

According to her, wearing the face shield alongside the face mask gives much more protection than wearing only the face mask or only the face shield and that is mostly the reason for their donation she said.


Dr. Justice Duffu Yankson, Esq, the General Secretary of Ghana Medical Association thanked them for their donation.

He said collectively if we put our resources and our minds together we will be able to combat Covid-19 and especially if the general population takes very proactive stands by way of getting themselves protected through adherence to all the safety protocols such as social distancing, the use of the face mask, hand washing, the use of sanitizers among others.


He indicated that, we should always wear the face shield with the mask and urge all not to go around with only the face shield but also use the mask.

According to him what the mask does, unfortunately the face shield alone can not do and that is why you should always wear the face shield with the mask.
