The Taiwanese government’s quick and early response to the health crisis contributed immensely. Through timely and reliable programs that were delivered through humorous, relaxed, and emphatic ways, the government became successful in informing and educating its citizens about the virus. Their strict implementation of preventive and control measures during the early stages of the virus outbreak also helped minimize cases and mitigate the entry of COVID-19 into Taiwan.

As the country eases into the new normal, Taiwan has launched a new initiative called #WeBeatTheChallengeTogether that aims to promote discipline, cooperation, and unity among its population in these trying times. A rallying cry that shows that the Taiwanese are steadfast and united in addressing and managing the contagion.

You can watch their campaign video here, which features local personalities Rovilson Fernandez and Valerie Tan:


Taiwan also has instituted a national mask program for its people and even donated millions of face masks to European countries, the United States, and neighboring allies including the Philippines. A gesture that goes to show that, throughout the world, we truly can end COVID-19 if #WeBeatTheChallengeTogether.

Today, Taiwan embraces the new normal by strictly implementing the standard protocols: frequent hand washing, wearing of face mask, and maintaining social distancing to help prevent disease transmission in public areas.

Truly, Taiwan is in the forefront of a successful fight against COVID-19.
