ICRT and ECCT staff writers
Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) reported that Taiwan has seen a fourth consecutive day with no new coronavirus infections. According to the CECC, Taiwan's coronavirus caseload remains at 429, with 311 patients having recovered and completed their quarantine. Of the 429 people who tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Taiwan, 343 cases were imported, 55 were locally acquired and 31 were a cluster infection originating on the navy supply ship Panshih.
Yesterday marked the 100th day since the CECC’s establishment on 20 January and the 16th consecutive day that no domestic case has been confirmed in Taiwan.
As the situation seems under control, CECC director Chen Shi-chung is encouraging people to donate their mask rations to foreign aid efforts. So far 260,000 people have opted to do so.
Chen said that while people can begin relaxing their vigilance a little, there are no plans to lift crowd control measures for the upcoming Labor Day long weekend.
