Fuji TV reported that the MHLW disclosed that out of the 470,000 face masks that the GOJ sent to local governments for distribution to pregnant women, about 46,934 were either moldy or yellowed. The network said although there was no problem with the quality of the masks that had turned yellow, the GOJ will resume distributing face masks to pregnant women starting in the middle of this month after inspecting them first.
