Taiwan focuses on humanitarian aid, global community support and financial support to tourism sector
In an effort to maximise transparency, TTB will be sharing every month, the efforts taking place within Taiwan to cope with the situation and the extent of the virus spread in Taiwan. Towards this end, we would like to focus on three areas:
As of April 8, there are a total of 379 confirmed cases in Taiwan, of which approximately 300 are imported (which implies brought in by travellers coming to or returning to Taiwan). The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced social distancing measures in public areas and workplaces however schools and offices continue to remain open.
Taiwan is producing 13 million masks per day and is encouraging all those inside the country to ensure they wear a mask when stepping outside their home. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has announced that Taiwan will donate 10 million masks to countries that have been most severely impacted by the coronavirus as part of its global ‘Taiwan Can Help’ campaign. Europe and the US will be the beneficiaries of these masks.
Global support and cooperation
Taiwan is closely cooperating with many countries on rapid testing, vaccines, pharmaceutical R&D - including increased production and distribution of quinine, and their proactive efforts to produce materials needed to stop the spread of COVID-19. “Out of humanitarian concern, Taiwan cannot stand by while countries are in dire need of assistance to stop the spread of this virus,” added the President.
