Taiwan’s police officers and paramedics are taking steps to keep themselves healthy amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
A police station in the southern city of Tainan has set up a makeshift office outdoors, a response to growing fears about COVID-19. When talking to those who come in, officers make sure to wear surgical masks.
One officer says those in the police force are concerned about getting infected on the job, especially when they have to work with people who cough and do not wear a mask.
