Data & Strategy: Taiwan’s Successful Response To Covid-19

It was very easy for the virus to spread to the island located just 130 km from the mainland. Taiwan has 23 million citizens, including 850,000 who reside in China and 404,000 who work there and commute on a regular basis. Besides, 3 million Chinese tourists visit the province every year. But ever since the outbreak of SARS in 2003, the country has been on constant alert in case of similar emergencies. Several facts confirm that Taiwan’s response to COVID-19 was effective. The details were described by three scientists in the prestigious “Journal of the American Medical Association” (JAMA).
