For the manikin coughing with different face coverings, we measured the direction and distance of the front throughflow jet (solid yellow line) as well as filtered air that flew through the mask fabric or was redirected by a valve (red dashed line) or leaked out through seams and joints of the heavy-duty face shields and handmade masks (blue dotted line).

All but the FFP1 and FFP2 mask and the lightweight 3D-printed face shield that is opened at the bottom generate significant backward leakage jets that could disperse virus-laden fluid particles over several metres. This could pose major hazards for clinicians in a confined space such as intensive care.
