PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

PPE is an acronym that you've likely heard a lot in the past half years—particularly in terms of shortages for epidemic prevention materials. It stands for personal protective equipment, which is filtering facepiece respirators (FFR), protective clothing, goggles, or other equipment designed to protect the wearer's body from injury or infection. It is an important method for the wearers to stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep the medical professionals (doctors, nurses, etc.) currently on the pandemic's frontlines safe.
