    The Chinese government has reaffirmed its willingness to help Taiwan battle a new wave of COVID-19 infections. The State Council Taiwan Affairs Office said two medical and cultural exchange foundations on the Chinese mainland were willing to donate vaccines to the island. Officials say the central government is willing to coordinate and support the relief efforts.

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
