Taipei, CNA (CNA) An article by Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) was included in a special issue published by Time Magazine on Thursday that asked over 50 TIME 100 honorees for their insights on the challenges the world faces navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.

The special issue, titled "Finding Hope," reached out to hundreds of people who have appeared on Time's list of the 100 most influential people, including Former Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon and the 14th Dalai Lama, for their perspectives on the pandemic, according to the American news magazine.

In her article, Tsai wrote that Taiwan's success in preventing a major outbreak of the coronavirus "is no coincidence."

"A combination of efforts by medical professionals, government, private sector and society at large have armored our country's defenses," she wrote, adding that the painful lesson Taiwan learned during the 2003 SARS outbreak put its government and people on high alert early on.
