[Forward Information] Starting March 5, everyone to be allowed for one additional face mask every week due to increased production
As the domestic production of medical face masks requisitioned under the current rationing system is growing, the production volume for this week is estimated to reach 8.2 million face masks per day on average. As a result of the increased production, the Central Epidemic Command Center announced that starting March 5, adults will be eligible for three face masks and children will be allowed for five masks every seven days, under name-based system. The daily provision of adult face masks will increase from 400 to 600 at locations authorized to sell face masks, including NHI contracted pharmacies and local district public health centers. Face masks for children to be supplied to these locations will remain the same, 200 child-size face masks a day. Moreover, the rules and price for purchasing face masks remain unchanged.
