Zero local covid case in Taiwan led to fewer people getting vaccinated

People who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19 should do so as soon as possible said Taiwan Minister of Health and Welfare Chen Shih-chung, who heads the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The CECC is watching reports on the Omicron variant closely, especially to see if it would render vaccines less effective and reinfects people who have recovered from the virus.

Chen told the traditional Chinese medicine  forum that Taiwan’s COVID-19 situation is under control, with no new domestic cases reported in several days.

However, this has led to fewer people getting vaccinated in the past few weeks, he added.

Vaccinated people are 10 times less likely to develop severe symptoms or die, urging people who only had their first dose to get their second.

The Omicron variant, which was first reported in southern Africa and is deemed a “variant of concern” by the WHO.
