By BBN Staff: The Republic of China (Taiwan) has placed a ban on allowing foreign university students into the country as COVID-19 cases continue to run rampant throughout the world, according to an article published in Taiwan News.
Taiwan’s Ministry of Education reportedly disallowed some 26,000 foreign students from entering the country due to COVID-19 concerns. The Ministry said that it will wait until the pandemic has shown some signs of decline globally before it lifts the restriction.
Taiwan news said that the country had hoped to lift the restriction in July but later reversed the idea as cases continue to rise globally. Going forward, admission of foreign students will be largely dependent upon the pandemic subsiding globally, as well as Taiwan’s testing capacity and the availability of dorms at the universities.
As of today, June 6, 2020, Taiwan has gone 53 days without local cases. The country, which has a population of around 23 million, saw a total of 443 cases and seven deaths, despite its proximity to mainland China, where the pandemic originated.
The global number of confirmed COVID-19 cases stands at over 6.6 million, with over 389,000 deaths.
