ANN/THE KOREAN HERALD – The South Korean government’s decision to lift its indoor mask mandate has been welcomed by many, but it is being seen as a giant threat to the survival of mask manufacturers already struggling to stay afloat.
“We are just hanging in there,” Jung, an owner of a small mask manufacturing company, told The Korea Herald.
“It will be difficult to hold out if the current situation continues.”
Local manufacturers are now suffering from shrinking mask demand. Many manufacturers have already closed factories, while others decided to brace for difficulties by cutting expenses, although they are not certain for how long they can stay afloat like that.
