By BBN Staff: To date, Taiwan has seen a low number of confirmed cases and deaths of COVID-19, despite its close proximity to China, where the outbreak originated.

On their website, #Taiwancanhelp, Taiwan shares their experience in combatting pandemics.

The Taiwanese government’s response includes information transparency with daily press conferences to keep the public updated on the pandemic.

The Government also coordinated with different industries to boost the daily mask production from 1.8 million to 15 million.

The citizens strictly follow the policies for social distancing and face mask rationing.

The Taiwanese government implemented border control immediately in response to new developments of the pandemic.

Civil engineers utilized open data to keep the people informed of mask inventory.

In addition to this, the advance medical research saw research institutions working closely with the government and corporations to develop rapid tests, antidotes, and vaccines.

According to the website, Taiwan has developed rapid tests and has synthesized Remde­sivir and Favipiravir, two potential COVID-19 drugs.

“We managed to isolate virus strains from patients to syn­thesize the spike protein, a key material in vaccine development,” the website informed.

The #TaiwanCanHelp website also noted that Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen announced plans to help countries that have been most severely impacted by the coronavirus.

The country has also donated 16 million masks to countries suffering from the pandemic.

To protect the medical workers who protect the people, Taiwan has donated personal protective equipment to Italy, and ventilators to Prague.

In the fight against COVID-19, Taiwan’s government established partner­ships with the United States, the European Union, and other nations to share resources.

These measures implemented by the Taiwan Government were also cited in a CNN report referring to Taiwan’s response to COVID-19 as among the best globally.

With relation to aid, Taiwan through the Regional Emergency Fund against the COVID-19 Pandemic under the Central American Integration System (SICA)-Taiwan Framework Agreement assisted Belize with a further two million dollars for urgent additional equipment needed for the COVID-19 fight.

As long-time friends for more than 30 years, and in recognition of how Taiwan has demonstrated to the world its success and strength in limiting the impact of COVID-19, Belize continues to advocate for Taiwan’s inclusion and participation in the World Health Organization and its annual World Health Assembly, especially as countries improve responses to COVID-19 and global public health planning.
