Look at how the Taiwanese government dealt with the Corona virus threat; Taiwan has managed to successfully contain the spread of the disease. To date, Taiwan has not experienced any community outbreaks of the highly contagious virus. Apart from a cluster outbreak in north Taiwan, the disease’s spread has been limited to date.
A major part of Taiwan’s preventive effort has been its ability to successfully tamp down on travelers coming to the island and requiring quarantines for Taiwanese nationals with travel histories to mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau. This countermeasure was already implemented in January when the Taiwanese Government very early acknowledged first infections in China. The Taiwanese alertness as well as preparedness has been a result of a positive learning curve since the previous SARS epidemic in 2002/3.
Taiwanese authorities continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in China and around the globe and will quickly adjust measures taken to date as the situation changes.
