This man created DIY face shields for his fellow hospital workers

The lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical staff has prompted this netizen to invent his own face shield.

Spending only P20 for each face shield, Clement Vanrich Monreal came up with this DIY project to support his fellow workers at the Ma. Estrella General Hospital in Calapan, Oriental Mindoro.

Monreal is a registered nutritionist dietician and trained diabetes educator.

The hospital has shown support for his initiative with its different departments now helping to provide these face shields for medical frontliners, Monreal has told GMA Public Affairs.

Monreal said that the materials used are available at bookstores, school supplies sections and grocery stores.

"Low cost but this will ensure the health and safety of both medical staff and the patient," he said.
