The two-hour meeting included Taiwan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hsu Szu-chien (徐斯儉), Taiwan Adventist Hospital President Huang Hui-ting (黃暉庭) and his team, and the governors of both Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, Lourdes A. Leon Guerrero and Ralph DLG. Torres, respectively. Government officials and medical experts from California, Washington, D.C., Hawaii, and the Canadian city of Toronto also attended the event.
Taiwan’s medical team shared the country’s coronavirus response, which has generally been seen as successful. The deputy minister remarked that six factors have characterized the so-called “Taiwan model,” including quick responses, proactive precautions, centralized command, and cross-ministerial efforts.
The rationing of masks and alcohol, which can be turned into sanitizers, has also been key to the government’s fight against the coronavirus. In addition, Hsu noted that the medical experts from the Centers for Disease Control have been carrying out meticulous tasks to track each confirmed case and their contacts. [FULL STORY]
