Taipei, July 25 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) said Saturday that a group of U.S.
medical experts have commended Taiwan on its treatment of patients who suffered severe burns in a flash fire at a New Taipei water park last month.
The experts in burn treatment, who visited Taiwan to offer advice, highly praised the work of the Taiwanese medical staff and the government’s efforts to assist the hundreds of burn victims, Ma said on his Facebook page.
Ma made the comment after meeting Friday with the six-member team, which was led by Stephen Maxwell Milner, director of the Johns Hopkins Burn Center.
“This was the first visit by the experts to Taiwan and they were impressed by Taiwan’s advanced medical equipment, techniques and the national health insurance system,” Ma said. [FULL STORY]
