The masks showed very undesirable as a result of their low quality and also slow-moving shipment, with billions of yen invested in the plan. So much 130 countless them have actually been sent out to houses across the country.
Even though scarcities are relieving, the plan has actually remained to court debate.

The federal government is currently taking into consideration providing the masks just to those that request them and also stockpiling the rest.
