The Areté Makerspace team has assembled more than 1,600 face shields for the use of healthcare professionals who are now leading the fight against Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in various hospitals in Metro Manila and around the country. The team started working on the face shields on March 25 and they have created 13 prototypes, four of which were approved by doctors and collaborators. The completed face shields have since been distributed to different medical facilities through the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health.
