Taipei runs new ID-based mask vending machines amid COVID-19 pandemic

To reduce the hassle of purchasing the badly needed surgical masks, Taipei started operating  ID-based mask vending machines on Saturday (April 11).

The machines allowing people to buy surgical masks through multiple payment options using their NHI cards for ID verification is a product of collaboration between the city government’s technical task force, industry players, and the National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA).

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je tried the new service personally and said that the new invention is easy, reliable, and time-saving as it only takes 30 seconds to complete the purchase.

Micro-Star International Co. (MSI), a local IT company that designs and provides computer software and services, to develop the mask-vending machines, believes the invention will help relieve designated mask distributors of their burden while ensuring that personal data are not intruded upon.

Ko added that before expanding the service to all of Taipei's 12 administrative districts, there will be three machines installed at the capital’s Xinyi District Health during the trial run.
