Medical experts from United States and Canada drew lessons from Taiwan's COVID-19 tactics


Over a hundred doctors from the United States and Canada drew lessons from Taiwan through video conferencing conducted by Linkou Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan News reported.


Taiwan has implemented several successful efforts to combat and contain the new coronavirus or COVID-19.

More than one hundred doctors who came from 52 medical institutions across US and Canada learned about Taiwan’s disease control measures in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Taiwan shares efforts like border controls, mask export bans, entry restrictions, case contact tracing, quarantine policies, resource distribution and screening methods.

The medical experts also gained insight into what has been done to reduce transmission risks at the hospital in Taoyuan City.


Methods span restricted patient movement, separate treatment areas, and designation of red wards for confirmed coronavirus cases, according to the report.

For their part, the participants based in North America shared their clinical experience during the pandemic which focused on symptoms, choice of medications, virus survival periods, and whether patients could still infect others after testing negative for the novel virus.
