Working together, the government and local mask manufacturers are now churning out 10 million masks a day. This is a huge leap from the 1.88 million units three months ago.
The CECC said masks will be available at all duty-free shops at the country's five international airports from Saturday (March 21) and each inbound passenger can buy one pack of three adult-size or five child-size masks for NT$50 or US$2. A boarding pass, passport, or equivalent travel documents are required to make the purchase.
Purchases for both Taiwanese and foreigners will be recorded in the country's National Health Insurance system and is subject to the rationing policy of every Taiwanese and Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) holder buying three adult-size or five child-size masks per week. Each unit costs just NT$5 (US$0.17), regardless of the size. [FULL ST-ORY]
