Kaohsiung's Tower 85 flashes 'zero' as Taiwan reports no new cases of COVID-19

The Kaohsiung's 85 Sky Tower, or "Tower 85" in Taiwan lighted up its window to form the number zero as Taiwan reported no new cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), fourth day in a row.

An American doctor posted the photo of the tower which was taken on Wednesday (April 29) at 7:10 pm on Sanduo 4th Road, in Kaohsiung's Lingya District. At that time, the island nation was on its fourth day without any newly reported cases of coronavirus.

On Thursday, Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) recorded no new cases of COVID-19 for five straight days marking the 18th day that the country had not reported a local case.

So far, Taiwan only has 429 total cases, 343 were imported, 55 were local, and 31 came from the "Goodwill Fleet." Meanwhile, there are only six who have succumbed from the disease and 322 who have been released from hospital isolation.

The authorities are still urging the public who feels unwell to call the toll-free disease prevention hotline at 1922. The CECC also adviced patients to proactively inform doctors of their travel history and every person they have recently come into contact with.
