    After months of relative safety – Taiwan is facing a surge in domestic COVID-19 cases while running out of vaccines at the same time. The Chinese-claimed island has so far received only about 700,000 doses of vaccine for its more than 23 million people. But has angrily rebuked China’s offer to help, accusing Beijing of spreading fake news. National Taiwan University’s Professor Chang-Chuan Chan says not being able to purchase vaccines from China is an obstacle because they need more vaccines to “get out of this mess”.

    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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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.
