As the COVID-19 outbreak slowed, nations began to lift mask mandates. In contrast to Western counterparts, Asians seem less willing to take off their masks, with approximately 80% of individuals in South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan still opting to wear masks and benefitting from their diverse advantages.
Taipei, Taiwan (The CTP News) – Beginning in the latter half of 2022, nations around the world have been gradually lifting their pandemic-related restrictions. In addition to setting off a vigorous tourism wave, they also began to untie the shackles of masks and lift mask regulations. South Korea has lifted the ban on indoor covers since the end of January, and Taiwan has lifted the requirement to wear masks indoors since February 20. Except for public transportation and medical care institutions, the wearing of masks is no longer mandatory. Japan will also fully reopen on March 13. But will you take off the mask? Many Asians don’t do that.
