Taiwan's next 14 days would be critical over outbreak of COVID-19: President Tsai Ing-wen

President Tsai Ing-wen said that the next 14 days will be critical to Taiwan's COVID-19 prevention efforts as she  called on the public to take three steps to assist the government's response.

Speaking at the Presidential Office Building, Tsai made three appeals to the public.

First she call to follow the Central Epidemic Command Center's (CECC) epidemic prevention guidelines.

Second, she urged people not to blame others for the outbreak, but instead be grateful for the sacrifices being made by medical personnel, manufacturers of protective supplies, and those complying with home quarantine and self-health management guidelines.

Tsai asked that people refrain from creating panic and assist the government in transmitting accurate information about the virus as her third appeal.

This came after a one-week period in which Taiwan's confirmed cases of COVID-19 have doubled to 108.

Health Minister and CECC said Chen Shih-chung repeated Tsai's call for calm pointing out that Taiwan has had relatively few indigenous cases of the virus, and has a prevalence rate tens of times lower than many other countries.

Chen said the main focus is ensuring the virus does not spread at a community level.
