Covid-19 Cases in Taiwan

Has Taiwan Closed Its Borders?

Yes. As of 3/19/2020 non-residents will not be allowed to enter Taiwan.

Exceptions will be granted to those with residence permits, diplomats and anyone arriving to carry out commercial contracts. Returning or arriving to Taiwan from designated areas will require a 14-day quarantine.

No end date for the policy was announced.

If Taiwan has Closed its Borders Can I Still Arrive to Teach English?

Yes. Before, many people would travel to Taiwan as tourists. Visit a few cities. See if teaching was for them and then quickly be hired by any of the many schools offering jobs.

Now, under current Coronavirus conditions, youll be signing with your school in ADVANCE of your arrival and waiting for them to get you a Work Permit. Once received theyll email it to you as a PDF.

With your Work Permit issued, there are two ways your school can use to let you enter Taiwan: one, bring your Work Permit to the Taiwan embassy in your country nearest you can get a Special Entry Document which will let you enter. Apply for your ARC after you arrive in Taiwan.

Or, two - and sort of the gold standard - your school will apply for your ARC BEFORE you depart for Taiwan. Your ARC allows you to enter Taiwan.

Youll need to arrange a location to quarantine yourself for 14 days. A friends place is an option. But, you must have your own bathroom, and there cannot be any children or elderly people with chronic health conditions staying in the same house.

In lieu of staying with a friend Taiwan has also contracted with hotels to offer quarantine locations for you to stay in.

Prices range from as little as NT$2,000 per night to as high as 9,800, with the lower costs being a very basic type of lodging ranging up in terms of luxury.

So, in summary, the answer is YES! You can come to Taiwan and teach English even though the borders are technically closed. Youll be hired while your still in your home country and your Work Permit will be sent to you. Then, take your Work Permit to the Taiwan embassy nearest you and get your Special Entry permit. Arrive in Taipei and quarantine for two weeks. Your school is sure to help you every step of the way.

Has Taiwan continued to expand the tiers of people who can get the vaccine?

On May 6, the Central Epidemic Command Center announced that that beginning May 10, the government-funded COVID-19 vaccine would be available to individuals in the seventh priority group, i.e., members of the armed forces and civilian personnel in military agencies and national security units, and individuals in the eighth priority groups, i.e., people aged 65 and above.

Individuals eligible for the vaccine at this stage can schedule a vaccination online or via phone at a healthcare facility designated for COVID-19 vaccination or eligible individuals can visit a designated healthcare facility, present their National Health Insurance Card and other necessary identity documents, and get the vaccine after the doctor's assessment.

On April 21, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that the government-funded COVID-19 vaccine would be available to individuals in the fifth and sixth priority groups, i.e., essential personnel who maintain the normal functions of society such as police and military police officers, and staff and people receiving care at long-term care institutions, social welfare institutions and in the social welfare system on April 23.

The CECC clarified that individuals in the fifth priority group who require vaccinations must first obtain approval from the regulatory authority of the respective business, which must then request approval from the CECC. Regulatory authorities have already begun compiling lists of personnel requiring vaccinations. Individuals who have received official notification from the regulatory authority can schedule a vaccination online or via phone at one of 174 hospitals (including outlying islands) designated for COVID-19 vaccination starting April 23. Individuals eligible for the vaccine should arrive on time for their appointment and must present their National Health Insurance Card and other necessary identity documents before being vaccinated. Furthermore, vaccination arrangements for individuals in the sixth priority group, i.e., staff and people receiving care at long-term care institutions, social welfare institutions and in the social welfare system will be handled by the Department of Health of the local government.

Will people in Taiwan who need to travel abroad be able to self-purchase the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine?

Yes.  According to the Taiwan CDC, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced on 4/14 it would initially offer 10,000 self-paid COVID-19 vaccine doses to members of the public starting April 21. Related details are listed below.
1. Eligible persons: People who need to travel abroad for business, work, education, and medical treatment, and other humanitarian reasons or considerations.
2. Vaccination hospitals: A total of 31 hospitals with outpatient services in travel medicine that are designated for COVID-19 vaccination.
3. Self-paid vaccination is by appointment only.
4. The vaccine doses are distributed by the CECC to designated hospitals, and members of the public can't choose which brand of vaccine they wish to receive.
5. Members of the public who wish to receive self-paid vaccine doses must pay for the registration, diagnostic, and injection fees charged by the hospital for their vaccination; however, the cost of the vaccine itself will be waived.  

Has Taiwan begun offering disease prevention and control personnel COVID-19 inoculations as part of it's tiered distribution of vaccine?

Yes.  According to the Taiwan CDC, on April 7, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that it would begin to offer COVID-19 vaccine to disease prevention and control personnel at the central and local governments and front-line workers at high risk of exposure, who are Groups 2 and 3 people listed in the COVID-19 vaccination program, on April 12. Workers at high risk of exposure include flight crews of Taiwanese airlines, crewmembers on international merchant vessels, quarantine taxi drivers, and front-line workers who deal with quarantine-related matters at quarantine hotels.

The CECC explained that members of the public eligible for vaccination can make an appointment starting April 15. It is expected that starting April 16, there will be 170 vaccination sites in Taiwan that offer vaccinations, and eligible people can look up vaccination sites on the Internet and make an appointment.

Has the first batch of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine been allocated?

Yes.  According to the Taiwan CDC, on April 3, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that 1.02 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been allocated to Taiwan through the COVAX Facility.

The CECC made this decision to maximize the benefits of vaccine.

The CECC explained that it would set up 16 more injection sites in addition to the original 87 vaccination locations with a view to increasing vaccine accessibility. People eligible for vaccination can make an appointment with those sites to get vaccinated.

Has Taiwan begun administering the AstraZeneca vaccine?

Yes. According to the Taiwan CDC, on March 19, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that according to the recommendations made in the expert meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the clinical benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine in preventing COVID-19 infection and severe symptoms after infection outweigh the risk of adverse reactions after vaccination, and it is recommended that the AstraZeneca vaccine be offered to the priority groups as planned. Therefore, the CECC announced that vaccinations would start on March 22.

The CECC pointed out that some of the 116,500 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were transported to 57 injection sites on 3/19. These vaccine doses are scheduled to be offered to medical personnel who work at COVID-19 wards or negative pressure isolation wards, or who are responsible for specimen collection starting March 22.

As taking contraceptive pills and undergoing hormone therapy are risk factors for blood clotting, people receiving these two treatments are advised not to receive COVID-19 vaccination at this stage. Furthermore, members of the public who wish to get vaccinated are advised to consult their doctor and assess related risks before immunization.

Did Taiwan receive any vaccine for Covid-19?

Yes.  According to the Taiwan CDC, on March 3, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that the first batch of 117,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses manufactured by AstraZeneca arrived at Taoyuan International Airport from Korea on the morning of March 3.

About the Latest Cases

According to the Taiwan CDC, on May 14, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced five new confirmed imported cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Taiwan. Of those five new cases, two arrived in Taiwan from Indonesia (Case #1258 and Case #1259); two arrived from Paraguay (Case #1260 and Case #1261), and one traveled from Albania (Case #1262).

Case #1258 is an over 40-year-old man from Indonesia. The Indonesian man traveled to Taiwan for studies on April 27. He was tested on May 12 after completing the quarantine period, and infection with COVID-19 was laboratory-confirmed in the case on May 14.

Case #1259 is an over 20-year-old fisherman from Indonesia. He traveled to Taiwan for work on April 29. He was tested on May 12 before completing the quarantine period, and infection with COVID-19 was laboratory-confirmed in the case on May 114.

Case #1260 and Case #1261 are a Taiwanese man in his 60s and a Paraguayan woman in her 50s, respectively. Both cases tested positive for COVID-19 in Paraguay. They returned to Taiwan on May 12. Infection with COVID-19 was laboratory-confirmed in the cases on May 14.

Case #1262 is an over 20-year-old female from Albania. She traveled to Taiwan for work on April 18. She visited the hospital to take a self-paid test on May 13. Infection with COVID-19 was laboratory-confirmed in the case on May 14.

Also on May 14, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced 29 new confirmed indigenous cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Those 29 new cases (Cases #1263-1291), including the two cases confirmed to have COVID-19 in a hospital yesterday evening, are all Taiwanese nationals. They are 16 women and 13 men ranging in ages from 10 to 79 years old. Of the 29 individuals, 4 were asymptomatic while the other 25 experienced an onset of symptoms between May 2 and May 12.

16 of today's new cases are linked to the teahouses in Taipei's Wanhua District and the neighboring area; five cases are linked to Case #1203 and other cases associated with the case; and one case is linked to the cluster infection in an amusement arcade in Yilan, while the other seven cases are still being investigated to determine if any association exists.

The CECC reported that a cumulative total of 224,617 cases related to COVID-19 have been reported in Taiwan among which COVID-19 has been ruled out in 217,290. Of these reported cases, infection with COVID-19 was laboratory-confirmed in 1290 cases. Of the 1290 confirmed cases, 1073 are imported; 164 are indigenous; 36 are naval crew members aboard the Panshi fast combat support ship; 2 are infections on an aircraft; 1 case has unknown sources of infection; 14 cases' sources of infection are being investigated; and 1 case (Case #530) has been removed (Case #530 is not assigned to any patients). Of the confirmed cases, there have been 12 deaths, and 1107 patients have been released from isolation, with the other 171 patients remaining hospitalized in isolation.

Will Taiwan Implement Nationwide Testing?

Not yet. According to the Taiwan CDC, Regarding some scholars’ opinion that mass testing should be required for travelers bound for Taiwan, the CECC stated that though mass testing can identify asymptomatic carriers, our measures of a 14-day period of home quarantine imposed on arrivals and a 7-day period of self-health management following the end of the quarantine period for asymptomatic individuals have continued to effectively contain the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Taiwan. There are cases of asymptomatic individuals infecting others, which resulted in outbreaks in communities, in other countries or regions. One of the reasons for the community outbreaks in some countries or regions might be that they didn’t implement a 14-day period of quarantine or required contacts of confirmed cases to self-isolate at home for 14 days, which is different from Taiwan’s quarantine measures.

In Taiwan, after infection with COVID-19 has been laboratory-confirmed in a reported case, health authorities will identify contacts of the confirmed case who meet epidemiological criteria, including asymptomatic carriers or infected individuals with early symptoms, whether clustering is observed or not. Furthermore, molecular diagnostic testing for the diagnosis of COVID-19 is adopted. Taiwan’s epidemic prevention and control efforts are in line with the testing strategies of many medically advanced countries worldwide, and are composed of various measures, not just testing.
