TAIPEI — Taiwan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare has launched a website to share with the world the successful policies that the country has implemented in its prevention efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Sunday.

The website, titled “Taiwan Crucial Policy for Combating COVID-19,” provides information about major developments and policies in Taiwan relating to its battle against the coronavirus since Dec. 31, 2019, CECC administration department chief Cheng Shun-ping (鄭舜平) said at a daily press briefing.


Taiwan has been praised by countries around the world for its swift and successful coronavirus prevention efforts, which have kept its confirmed COVID-19 cases at only 443, with seven deaths, since the outbreak started late last year, he noted.

Some of the main factors behind Taiwan’s success are its universal health care system, its adequate medical supplies and its public health resources, Cheng said.


People in other countries can find detailed information about Taiwan’s healthcare system on the new website, Cheng said.

The site also has a record of Taiwan’s border restrictions and policies regarding the supply and sale of surgical face masks, Cheng said.

An interactive timeline allows users to compare the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Taiwan with the rest of the world, he said.

The website has an English and Chinese interface, Cheng said, adding that visitors can view the information in 10 other languages, including Filipino, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and Thai, by using the translate function on their browsers.
