    The numbers tell the tale. A little more than a thousand registered cases and only 11 COVID related deaths for a population of nearly 24 million. Strict quarantine controls and test and trace are being attributed to the island’s remarkable success in keeping case numbers low. Something that was visible when a small outbreak hit a large hospital back in January.

    As many countries around the world battle second, even third waves of the coronavirus, life in Taiwan appears near normal.

  • In This Story: Taiwan

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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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