In the last couple of weeks I’ve seen a wide variety of commercials geared at face covering and “protections” aimed at mitigating the impact of the COVID-19 virus. Some of that impact involves safety, some comfort, some usability. The items range from cotton, to infused fabrics, to ones with filters, ones with layers, one with face shields that flip down, ones with face shields that flip up and every one of them have their own infomercial… all of them.

Yet, not all of them seem to conform to the CDC guidance on protections. At all… How can they do that? Why invest the money and time into something that not only doesn’t work, but could carry potential dangers? It’s like selling mesh condoms because the fit is better. Putting a plastic neck collar on with a flip up, clear shield may be more comfy, but it leave all kinds of air and space all over the head. Sneeze into it and now you might be temporarily blinded, also… Nothing about this seems safe at all. It seems to me that if safety is priority, selling placebo products should stop. It goes to show how ripe the fear market is during a pandemic. ZShield, you should be ashamed of yourself (among others)…
