All national dailies wrote that Prime Minister Abe said at a GOJ taskforce headquarters meeting on Wednesday that the government will distribute reusable cloth face masks to all 50 million households in Japan. Each household with a registered postal address will receive two washable cloth masks starting the week after next. The distribution of masks is part of the economic package that the government will compile next week. Abe stressed that providing reusable masks will be helpful in responding to the rapidly increasing demand for masks and that the provision will start with prefectures that have large numbers of coronavirus cases.
