All national papers highlighted remarks made during a Diet committee session on Thursday by Prime Minister Kishida, who said it is “not realistic” to relax the COVID-19 protocol of requiring face masks in public spaces. “Covering the face with a mask is extremely important as a basic infection prevention measure,” he said, adding that people might not need to wear masks outdoors if they can maintain “sufficient distance” from other people.
