More than a year after the declaration of one of the world’s longest lockdown, the Philippine government has yet to decide whether or not faceshields are necessary to control the spread of COVID-19. This is still the case in the Philippines while some parts of the world are already enjoying concerts and football matches.
The debate on faceshields simply indicates the poor internal communication system under the Duterte Government. As netizens have been saying, the national government officials lack at least a group chat or a viber group.
The issue on face shields also came after the realization of President Rodrigo Duterte the importance of face masks.
