Writing on his Facebook page, Sue said the next two weeks would be crucial in controlling the transmission chain.
“Compared to this time last year, we already have more experience and resources to fight the epidemic,” he said.
“In collaboration with the central and local governments, the command center has consistently found infection discipline in confirmed cases and does not need to upgrade (alert level) for the time being.”
Taiwan reported only 1,233 cases of imports out of a population of about 24 million, with the recent slight increase in internal infections shocking the Taiwanese people and the stock market.

Taiwan never went into full lockdown.
