As the world continues to battle with the global pandemic, coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, many people are focused on finding new ways to stay protected while scientists continue to search for the cure.
A 20-year-old lady identified as Grace Ishicheli Kenechi has left social media users buzzing following her recent creation. Kenechi who is a first-class graduate of anatomy from Delta State University has decided to start making face masks.
However, Kenechi is making hers using beads. Following WHO's position on face masks which clearly states that if an individual is healthy, they only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with the virus, Kenechi was inspired to make her own type of face masks.
According to her, medical experts disagree that wearing face masks protects one from getting infected.
