Wearing a mask, “completely normal” in Japan for years

Le port du masque, «complètement normal» au Japon depuis des années

While the port of the mask is facing a lot of opposition in Quebec, it is “completely normal” to put it in Japan, and this, “for several decades”, reports the delegate general of Québec in Tokyo, David Brulotte.

“It is really a society that is based on the collective good first […]. In general, people are very respectful of social standards and the demands of the government”, underlined the latter in an interview at QUB radio on Thursday.

In his eyes, it is one of the factors that has limited the spread of the COVID-19 within the japanese population, as the natural tendency of the inhabitants of Japan not to touch.

“When you say hello, you don’t squeeze the hand, it is a courbette. There are few curly braces”, gave the example of Mr. Brulotte.
