The Food and Drugs Authority has registered and approved 10 face masks and face shields for use in Ghana.

The 10 face masks and face shields are Heritage Face Mask, Joeritz Face Shield, Lily of the Valley Face Mask, Notill Face Shield, Otech Biotech Face Mask and Pacific Face Mask. The rest are Sixteen 47 Face Shield, Sixteen 47 Face Mask, Studio AK Face Mask and the Swift Face Mask.

The Public Relations Officer and the Head of Communications of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Mr James Lartey told Graphiconline that all the 10 face masks/face shields are re-usable.

The list of registered face masks/face shields copied to Graphiconline comes a week after President Akufo-Addo advised all Ghanaians to wear face masks.

The Ministry of Health (MoH) has directed the use of face masks in all public places where it may be difficult to maintain social distancing. It has also recommended that Ghanaians use only FDA-approved masks.
