Personal protective equipment (PPE) is utilised to stop the transmission of the new coronavirus, or COVID-19 (COVID-19). The goal of this gear is to shield the wearer from the virus, which is mostly transmitted by respiratory droplets from infected people. Among the things covered under COVID-19 PPE are face masks (including surgical and N95 respirators), face shields, gloves, gowns, and eye protection (such as goggles or safety glasses).

In order to stop the spread of COVID-19, health organisations like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise wearing COVID-19 PPE. Healthcare professionals and other key people who face a higher risk of viral exposure should pay particular attention to this. In order to stop the virus from spreading, COVID-19 PPE must be used and disposed of properly.
