Addressing face mask shortage in South Korea

Volunteers stretch as they make face masks at a district office in Seoul on Friday. The volunteers make some 2,000 face masks per day as part of an initiative by the Nowon district office to address the shortage of face masks amid concerns over the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, and are handed out to people in need.
