Japan withdraws the obligation to wear a mask starting this Monday

The Japanese Government has withdrawn the mandatory use of the mask as a generic norm due to the coronavirus pandemic as of this Monday.

However, it maintains the recommendation to wear a mask on specific occasions such as healthcare spaces or on busy buses or trains, reports the Japanese public television NHK. The objective is to avoid contagion among the elderly population or those at risk of suffering serious symptoms.

The regulatory change includes a campaign in the media, television ads and other media to explain when and where the use of a mask is recommended.

Now COVID-19 is labeled as a level two infectious disease, the second highest, while from May 8 it will drop to category five, the lowest.
