South Korea will allow citizens to send more face masks to their family members living abroad.

Customs officials said, starting Monday, a person will be able to send 90 face masks per quarter.

For the past three months, a person has been allowed to send a maximum of 36 face masks to family members living abroad.

The government introduced the mask rationing system in early March due to surging demand as the spread of the new coronavirus worsened, but the scheme will end Sunday, with the supply of masks stabilizing.

But the government will continue to ban overseas shipments of surgical masks and thinner anti-saliva masks to meet local demand for such products in the summer.
