Tsai Ing-wen suspends inauguration ceremony as Taiwan president to prevent virus spread


Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen suspends the preparations for her second inauguration ceremony to prioritize prevention efforts against the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.


The president will only follow the advice of the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) if any ceremony is safe to celebrate specially in a public event.

Tsai also thanked several religious organizations in Taiwan for their decisions to postpone large events or to instead livestream services due to the outbreak.

On January 11, Tsai was re-elected to a second and final four-year term with a record 8.17 million votes or 57.1 percent. The inauguration ceremony is scheduled for May 20 but temporarily suspended.


Currently, Taiwan has listed 40 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus where 9 are fully recovered.
