Taiwan still far from nationwide lockdown despite COVID-19 cluster infection

Health Minister and CECC head Chen Shih-chung announced at a press conference on Wednesday (April 22), that the recent COVID-19 cluster infection in Taiwan's naval "Goodwill Fleet"  will not bring the country to a complete nationwide lockdown, according to CNA.

Chen attended the Taiwan Cabinet’s conference on the progress of economic development on Wednesday morning. Responding to questions from reporters, Chen stated that everyone must be careful but that overall Taiwan has gone almost 10 days without any local cases.

The situation must be considered in the context of the global pandemic and Taiwan’s emergency management capabilities, he added. Chen assured the public that “Taiwan has not yet reached the point of a lockdown.”

Taiwan Premier Su Tseng-chang led the morning press conference, which was also attended by Vice-Premier Chen Chi-mai ; Cabinet Secretary-General Li Meng-yen; Cabinet spokesperson Kolas Yotaka; Minister without Portfolio Kung Ming-hsin; Minister of Economic Affairs Shen Jong-Chin; Finance Minister Su Chien-rong; Culture Minister Chen Li-chiun; Minister of the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting, and Statistics Chu Tzer-ming; and others.
