The Department of Health (DOH) said face shields that will be required in public transportation amid the COVID-19 pandemic would not be priced higher than P50 each.

DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said they have already come up with a suggested retail price (SRP) for face shields that is up for Secretary Francisco Duque III’s approval before it is transmitted to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

On Monday, the DTI said it had asked the DOH to impose an SRP for face shields in line with its mandatory use in public transportation starting August 15.

Ahead of the mandatory use, prices of face shields have reportedly started to go up, with wholesale prices now at P40 a piece from P18 previously. Retail prices have also gone as high as P50.
