Sharp's mask 4.7 million people draw lots more than 100 times application ratio New Corona April 28 11:37

Sharp accepted the application on the Internet on the 27th to sell the mask produced in-house by drawing, and revealed that there were applications from more than 4.7 million people. Although we quickly increased the number of sales, the draw ratio is over 100 times.

Sharp has been producing masks since last month at its factory in Taki-cho, Mie Prefecture, which produces LCDs, in an attempt to help eliminate the shortage of masks.

On 21st of this month, we started selling masks of 50 pieces per box at our company's online shopping site, but since it was on a first-come-first-served basis, access was flooded and it was difficult to connect to the site, so users can not purchase was.

For this reason, we switched to the lottery method for sales and accepted applications on the 27th, and there were 470,000 people applying for the sales of 30,000 boxes.

The company increased the number of sales to 40,000 boxes because there were more applications than expected, but the multiplication rate is still 117 times.

The lottery will be held on the 28th, and those who can purchase will be notified by email by the 29th.

Sharp intends to continue selling by lottery, and those who applied on the 27th and could not purchase it will be subject to the next lottery without having to re-proceed.
