Taipei, April 2 (CNA) Palau's Representative to the United Nations, Ngedikes Olai Uludong, expressed her thanks to Taiwan on Thursday, saying Taiwan has been the only country to come to Palau's aid during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

"Palau has been asking the global community for help, and no one responded expect Taiwan! Thank you so much. Friends indeed!" Uludong said on Twitter.

In two photos attached to her tweet, boxes of supplies from Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital in Taipei can be seen.

Palau, one of four countries in the South Pacific that maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan, has not recorded any COVID-19 cases to date, though an American national who visited Palau in early March displayed symptoms of the disease when she arrived.    [FULL  STORY]
