Coronavirus: S Korea starts own version of odd-even, rations purchase of masks
Amid the coronavirus scare, South Korea has introduced its own policy of ‘odd-even’ to distribute masks. People can purchase masks only on the weekday designated for the last digit of one’s birth year. The government has limited the maximum number of masks one can buy to two masks per week. South Korea reported 69 more cases, raising its total to 7,382, slightly surpassing Italy’s 7,375 as the second-worst outbreak.
