Taiwan and Taiwan Excellence issue the following statement regarding travel to Taiwan during the Coronavirus outbreak:

In response to the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV or Wuhan Pneumonia), the Taiwan government has taken comprehensive measures to protect the health of the public from the global outbreak.

All events and activities held by TAITRA and Taiwan Excellence for international visitors are and will always be conducted in full and stringent compliance with health and safety regulations and there is no danger posed to exhibitions and meeting venues in Taiwan.

Taiwan reacted swiftly to the novel coronavirus outbreak and the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (TCDC) immediately activated the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) in order to integrate resources across the government and networks of public health experts. Visitors can expect the highest standards for medical assistance with the most advanced medical equipment available.

Measures being taken to effectively control any spread of the novel coronavirus within Taiwan include the following:

  • Operating active surveillance and screening systems for disease control, such as Infrared Thermal Image Scanning (ITIS), at all major airports and ports.
  • Infection control drills are being conducted locally in Taiwan at healthcare facilities to minimize the impact of the outbreak.
  • Severe restrictions have been placed on visitors to Taiwan from China, the source of the novel coronavirus, including prohibiting, postponing and suspending tourist, student and business travel applications.

The WHO has issued the warning that the novel coronavirus is spreading throughout China and across the world. Updates as of Feb. 10th, 2020, Taiwan has only limited confirmed cases of the virus infection with 0 fatality; infected patients are in a stable and non-life threatening condition.
