Q: "What are other countries doing about masks?"

It is always useful to look at what other countries are doing. We have made a table of the situation as we know it in other countries: is wearing the mask recommended or compulsory, what other measures have been taken?

This table is sorted by ascending order of number of deaths (% of population). Of course it is interesting to cross check it against declared cases or their evolutions for those countries, as per the table here.
