Taiwan border control or entry restrictions cannot be relaxed at this stage of pandemic: CECC

Taiwan’s border controls will be relaxed but not at this stage of pandemic according to Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head and health minister Chen Shih-chung.

Border control is the primary way to contain the spread of the Delta variant and that checking vaccination status is not one of Taiwan’s measures, Chen sain in a report from CNA.

Taiwan primarily relies on quarantine and testing of arrivals to contain the pandemic, the health minister added.

“This is not out of the question further down the road,” on hope that the country will open up the border but infections of the Delta variant are on the rise around the globe and containing other variants are top priority.

Meanwhile, Taiwan's current COVID-19 Level 2 alert will be extended. CECC said it still needs time to gauge the COVID-19 situation.
