A virtual coronavirus-combating seminar involving participants from Taiwan and across Africa was staged July 6 by Taipei City-based Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and National Taiwan University Hospital.
Supported by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the event detailed the Taiwan Model and core components such as border controls, 14-day quarantines and surgical mask allocations, as well as hospital procedures for curtailing transmission of the virus first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan late last year.
A total of 361 health officials and medical personnel from ally Kingdom of Eswatini and 12 other nations took part. These were Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, Somalia, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda.
