The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Tuesday announced that starting Wednesday Dec. 23 at midnight, all those who enter Taiwan from the UK or have traveled to the UK within the last 14 days will be put in a centralized quarantine facility. The announcement came after the UK reported a new strain of the coronavirus in the country.
In addition, the number of flights from London to Taipei will be reduced by half starting the 23rd. The Civil Aeronautics Administration said that the two main airlines of Taiwan, namely China Airlines and EVA Air, will take turns flying to and from the UK.
