A Japanese company has created a mask made of nylon, which can be used by people multiple times. This product will be given to over 3,000 students this year. This mask can protect children from common viruses like coughs and colds. The company distributed the masks to the mayor of Nishiwaki City, Shozo Katayama, and his officials on March 19 of this year.

According to Shohei Utaka, the chairman of the firm, they want to help the community to solve the mask shortage. He also added that the company wishes the people to stay safe using their product. Nowadays, it is difficult for people to purchase masks, that is why this firm is trying to develop products that are inexpensive yet effective.
