Meanwhile, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has asked Nigerians not to use face shields alone as protection against contracting COVID-19. The centre added that there is no evidence to back the effectiveness of face shields when used alone to prevent COVID-19, adding that face shields are expected to be used alongside face masks for complete protection.
