Amidst ongoing disruption to international travel routes, and increasingly harsh immigration measures being taken across the region, Taiwan has announced its latest steps to help prevent the Wuhan-virus from spreading further in the country.

Effective February 11th, all travellers from areas outside China, Hong Kong and Macao need to fill in a ‘Health Declaration’ form detailing any recent travel itinerary in the three aforementioned areas, and any relevant contact history over the past 14 days.

Those failing to accurately do so face a fine of up to NT$150,000 according to the Taiwan Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Visitors from China, Hong Kong or Macao meanwhile are still required to fill in the Novel Coronavirus Health Declaration and Home Quarantine Notice, and to follow the relevant regulations pertaining to home quarantine 14 days after entering the county,

The latest measures come at the same time as South Korea recommending its nationals avoid “all nonessential travel to Taiwan” according to the CDC, and despite Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) declaring “there have been no community-acquired cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Taiwan so far.

To date, the 18 coronavirus cases that have been confirmed in Taiwan have proven to be imported or due to close contact with infected individuals.

  1. I think that what you wrote made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?

    I am not suggesting your content is not solid., but what if you added
    a post title that makes people desire more? I mean Taiwan to Impose Health Declaration Forms on All Visitors – The Taiwan Times is a
    little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write news
    titles to get viewers interested. You might
    add a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could
    make your posts a little bit more interesting.
