Taiwan government sent notice to Philippines to lift the imposed travel ban

On Monday afternoon (Feb 10), Philippine government said that Taiwan has been included in the travel ban imposed on China which cites information provided by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Taiwan has sent notice to push for a lift of the ban. This issue will be discussed on Wednesday (Feb. 12) at a meeting of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases led by the Philippine health ministry.

“As far as the health community is concerned and the WHO is concerned, Taiwan is part of China,” PH Health Undersecretary Eric Domingo said.

Many countries and international organizations, including the United Nations, which the World Health Organization is a specialized agency of, regard Taiwan as part of China under Beijing’s “One China” policy.

Taiwan has protested the move and blamed WHO for offering misleading information by grouping China and Taiwan together.
