DIY MOPP SUITS
Updated: Mar 30, 2020
The CDC has new advice for medical workers desperate to find PPE against COVID-19: "IDK, maybe try a bandanna or something."
The agency, scrambling to advise healthcare workers facing shortages of PPE, point out that, “Caution should be exercised as the capability of bandanas and scarfs to protect [medical workers] from the virus is currently unknown.”
Worst-case scenario? A DIY-mask, made from household products, is an option. Strung from paper towels, old clothing, bandanas, plastic bottles and rubber bands; these makeshift PPE will be more common place in the coming weeks.
