Taipei, July 14 (CNA) National Taiwan University's College of Public Health (NTUCPH) said Tuesday it is looking to work with a U.S. university to develop an innovative testing system to curb the spread of the COVID-19 new coronavirus.

At a weekly press briefing in Taipei, NTUCPH Dean Chan Chang-chuan (詹長權) said he hopes to import innovations being planned or tested at the University of California, Berkeley to be used in Taiwan's universities.

"If possible we will try to replicate what they are doing on a smaller scale at NTU, so we know what areas need to be adjusted," Chan said.

Citing approaches and innovations being planned or tested in the United States, Chan invited Taiwanese-American Michael C. Lu, dean of the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley to share new ideas with reporters in Taipei.    [FULL  STORY]
