Taiwan ‘never trusted’ China and took THREE key decisions to avoid coronavirus devastation

Wang Ting-Yu told Sky News that the Taiwanese Government does not trust the information it receives from China and therefore scopes the internet for signals. Mr Wang said they found information on the internet that suggested Wuhan was suffering from a disease similar to SARS. As a result, the Taiwanese Government implemented three procedures in a bid to limit the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. 

Mr Wang said: “We in Taiwan never trust the Chinese government so we have to get information elsewhere and we located a SARs like illness on the internet in 2019.

“We are very alert to information or a signal from China because formal information from the Chinese Government we need to really think about.

“In December 2019 there was a signal we found from China through the internet.

“We found that some SARS-like disease had happened in Wuhan.  

“So, when we noticed that signal, we took several procedures.”

He continued: “Firstly, we undertook an epidemic prevention process so on December 31, 2019, we decided to ban flights from Wuhan to Taiwan.

“Secondly, we established a commanding system of experts, doctors and academics to do the commanding job, not the politicians. From then on, the whole Taiwan Government followed instructions from the commanding system.

“Thirdly we made an inventory of all the resources we need and how many we have.”

The measures implemented by Taiwan have been extremely successful in limiting the spread of COVID-19.

Taiwan has less than 500 cases in total.

The death toll in Taiwan is currently 6 people.  

Over 260 people have recovered from COVID-19 in Taiwan.
