Mask wearing will be a personal decision from March 13th. On the other hand, I think there are many people who are thinking about what to do when the 13th arrives.
The country and experts say that there are situations where it is better to wear it after the 13th.
When should you wear a mask?
What will happen to the number of infected people in the future with mask relaxation?
It is summarized in Q&A format.
Regarding the wearing of masks as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus, the government has stated that from March 13, “whether or not to wear a mask will be the basic decision of the individual,” regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors.
If the number of people wearing masks decreases due to the relaxation of masks, what will happen to the number of infected people in the future?
A group led by Professor Akimasa Hirata of Nagoya Institute of Technology used AI (artificial intelligence) to calculate “if half the people continue to wear masks on a daily basis” and “if 80% stop wearing masks”.
In a trial calculation, we used AI to calculate the average number of infected people per day in Tokyo for a week, assuming that a highly contagious mutant virus will not appear and the population will gradually return to the pre-corona level. .
