Taiwan soon to return to normalcy if zero COVID-19 trend continues

Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that Taiwan has gone 32 days without reporting local transmission of COVID-19 and is only steps away from a return to normalcy according to Premier Su Tseng-chang.

Su said Taiwan's 32 days streak of zero local cases signified that the country had successfully contained the spread of the coronavirus. He added Taiwanese could expect to return to business as usual in the coming weeks if the trend continues.

According to Premier Su Tseng-chang,  people must be encouraged to go outdoors more and resume normal spending given that they follow the CECC's guidelines.

CECC Advisory Specialist Panel Convener Chang Shan-chwen said Taiwan had made it past two 14-day incubation periods, a good news from a public health perspective.

Health Minister and CECC head Chen Shih-chung stressed that the government planned to introduce "safe dining" certifications for restaurants that respect the social distancing rule, according to Liberty Times.
