A Japanese-style izakaya pub in Osaka has started distributing free face shields for use by its customers, in the hope of regaining drinkers after the state of emergency, over the novel coronavirus, was lifted last week.

The izakaya offering hot-pot dishes in Chuo Ward, Osaka, began the initiative on Monday. The transparent face shields protect against droplets while face-to-face socializing, and allow customers to enjoy drinking safely.
