Taiwan considers early lifting of restrictions if no local coronavirus cases by June 7
If Taiwan continues to record no local Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) until June 7, the government will consider the early relaxation of virus-related restrictions, the Central Epidemic Command Center stated Tuesday (May 26).
The CECC pointed out that Taiwan has had no local coronavirus cases for 44 days straight (over three COVID-19 incubation periods), showing that members of the public have been living safely in recent days. There, the CECC anticipates that if the lucky streak can continue for 56 days straight (the completion of four COVID-19 incubation periods), some virus-prevention measures could be lessened. If individuals continue to adhere to health-protection measures, including washing their hands, wearing face masks when taking public transportation, they might soon be allowed to resume a normal way of life.
The CECC thanked the public for closely following all the regulations issued by the CECC and expected to maintain this outstanding result that Taiwan has achieved.
