Next Up For Bat Soup Virus: Eye Protection

See, here was my bet for the next thing that would be recommended then become a mandate

Here’s where Dr. Fauci is going

(Fox News) Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, this week said wearing goggles or an eye shield in addition to a face mask would provide more complete protection against the coronavirus, according to a report.

“Theoretically you should protect all of the mucosal surfaces [eyes, nose, mouth], so if you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” he said in an interview with ABC News on Instagram Wednesday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already recommends wearing a face mask that covers the nose and mouth in public but the virus can also enter through the eyes.

Fauci recommended goggles in addition to a face mask for those who want “perfect protection” from the COVID-19 but admitted it’s not “universally recommended.”

He added one of the reasons eyewear hasn’t been recommended yet is “it’s so easy for people to just make a cloth mask.”

“Yet.” Will this happen? Time will tell. Remember, there was a time when the CDC said that only those who were sick should wear face masks. CDC guidance wasn’t changed on masks till May 30th for everyone to wear them. It’s always dangerous when people like Fauci start “just wondering.

    My favorite wife called me them other day, to bring her some safety goggles at work, because the nurses now have to wear face shields and with the required mask, it was fogging up on her.

    It turned out that the safety glasses were just as bad about fogging up, as anyone in construction knows when you are also wearing a dust mask.
