Citizens Will Be Able to Get 10 Masks Each From Thursday

The government announced yesterday it will allow people in South Korea to buy ten discounted face masks per week under a public distribution system.

South Korea suffered a mask supply crisis when the country’s COVID-19 outbreak peaked in late February and early March. The government stepped in to regulate mask production and distribution.

ID cards must still be used when purchasing masks.

Public selling of masks was expected to end at the end of this month, but has been extended until July 11th.
