Face shields in addition to masks became mandatory on public transport in Lima starting from Monday, as Peru has been trying to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
Footage filmed on Tuesday shows commuters wearing face masks and protective shields while entering one of the Lima Metro stations.
Police officers and public transport personnel were seen on bus stops and train stations across the capital to supervise compliance with the regulations.
«The use of a facial protector has been implemented to prevent and protect the health of those who use it and people have to understand it like this,» said Jorge Cuadros from the City Transport Authority (ATU).
«We are there on the train sharing the same air so with a face shield I feel more protected. Also, I no longer touch my face. It is like one more barrier,» said Rodolfo, one of passengers.
Peru has registered more than 362,000 of coronavirus cases with 13,579 deaths related to the virus.
