PH Navy personnel makes face shields for frontliners

A call to bayanihan is made, and the call has been answered by the men and women of the Philippine Navy through Naval Sea Systems Command (NSSC) personnel in Cavite City.

Globally there is glut in the supply of the Protective Personnel Equipment (PPE), demand is so high the supply can and will not be able to cope up.

Our country is in dire need of PPE’s for our frontliners, most specially the members of te Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) as medical professionals and the admin staff of hospitals where there are already Persons Under Investigation(PUI’s), Person Under Monitoring (PUM’s), and confirmed Covid-19 patients admitted in their premises are being prioritized.

The NSSC have started to make face shields to be used by our fleet-marine troops as an alternate offset on the ongoing shortage of supplies of PPE’s while the entire island of Luzon is under the “enhanced community quarantine.”

Said items will be given to Naval Task Group-NCR for proper distribution. Accordingly, an estimated of 400 pieces of facemask were consumed daily by the deployed troops.

“We wanted to support our frontliners by creating something that they can use in the fight against COVID-19. We also worry for their safety amidst the dwindling availability of protective equipment, this is why we thought of creating our own face shields.” According to NSSC commander, Rear Admiral Rommel Jason Galang.
