Figures for the month of March were even more dramatic, and close to data recorded during the height of the SARS epidemic in early 2003, CNA reported.
From January to March this year, 3,615,349 people arrived in Taiwan, while 3,552,631 took a flight out of the country. Those amounts stood at about half the level of the figures for the same period in 2019, when 7,043,653 arrivals and 7,152,826 departures were recorded.
For the month of Jan. 2020, both arrivals and departures were still rising compared to Jan. 2019 to 2.2 million and 2.3 million respectively, but during the month of February those figures fell by half, according to MOI data. [FULL STORY]
