I received this talk of town masks.
This is one of Prime Minister Abe’s counter measures against COVID-19: to deliver 2 masks per household.
Why 2 masks?
The average size of Japanese household is 2.47 persons.
Yes, our birth rate is low as 1.42 in 2018 (the latest statistics available).
I understand the budget is limited so it’s difficult to provide more; nonetheless, these masks are recyclable/washable.
The size of these masks are suited for women or children so it’s fine for me; however, I’m afraid these could be too small for men.
I still cannot find masks easily in the market so I’m thankful for these masks that I can get for free (well, technically paid by tax).
