Japan Drops Mask Mandate

N/A • 15 March 2023 04:20

Japan on Monday dropped its mandatory mask-wearing requirement, after three years, but hardly anything changed in the country, which has had an extremely high regard for their effectiveness, in preventing covid-19.

Most commuters exiting Tokyo’s main train station in the morning were wearing masks as they headed to work.

So were people on the streets, during a televised budget committee meeting at parliament, some lawmakers still wore masks, though Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, wasn’t wearing one when he arrived at his office on Monday.

Dropping the mask-wearing request is one of the last steps Japan’s Government, is taking in easing covid-19 restrictions in public places, as it tries to expand the business and other activities.
