A fan of Naruto? Why not incorporate the famed Japanese manga into your daily apparel, better yet, into your protective gear? This is what online store ‘Tiyangge ni Corona’ has thought about. The online store, spawned in the time of COVID, aims to supplement all personal protective equipment needs of Ilonggos, and even beyond Iloilo. Its products include face shield, alcohol dispenser, and disinfecting mats to mention a few.
It may be recalled that, earlier in August, a mandate was issued ordering commuters to wear face shields, especially when using public transportation. It was first ordered to the Department of Transportation and then to public places and establishments until it became a staple in everyday life.
It may also be recalled that the Department of Health Western Visayas Center for Health Development reminds the public that physical distancing, along with the use of face mask and face shield must be observed to protect oneself from COVID-19. The agency also clarified that minimum standards or requirements are issued by the health department to affirm that the protective device can serve its purpose – face shields, for example, should completely cover the full sides and length of the face.
