The Saturday editions of all national dailies took up the disclosure by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga on Friday that the GOJ has only delivered cloth masks to some 2.8 million households in Tokyo, or 4% of the households in Japan, even though Prime Minister Abe promised in early April that all households would receive such masks by the end of May. The government spokesman stressed that the delivery will be completed by the end of this month without fail, justifying the highly unpopular program on the grounds that demand for disposable masks has dropped following the delivery of the cloth “Abenomask.”
