We are a foreign government agency and would like to know the concept behind the so-called “Contact-Information-Based Measures “in Taiwan and how it would be implemented?
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has announced on May 28 that considering the low risk of community transmission in Taiwan, it would loosen restrictions on daily life. The CECC announced guidelines for “Contact-Information-Based Measures””.
1. Purpose of“Contact-Information-Based Measures “ : When there is a need for outbreak investigations, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) can immediately contact the person who has visited the specific place.
2. The items collected on personal data: It depends on the judgement and decision by the registrated venue operators and the public. The principle is of the least infringement on personal data while retaining the necessary information, such as only collecting a visitor’s cell phone number.
3. Personal data protection:
To ensure personal data protection, proprietors of venues where customers’ personal data is collected must designate a person to be in charge of keeping a record of and maintaining the collected personal data. Such data can be retained at most for 28 days and should be deleted thereafter. Such data may not be used for any purpose other than outbreak investigations. Personal data can be collected electronically or in writing. If personal data is collected electronically, information security protocols must be implemented. In addition, when collecting personal data, the individual or the organization should clearly inform data subjects of the following: the entity to collect personal data, purpose of collection, types of personal data to be collected, time period of using personal data, entities to use personal data and ways of using personal data, data subjects’ benefits and rights they can claim under the Personal Data Protection Act, and the effect of declining providing personal data.
The CECC states that if Taiwan continues to record no new indigenous cases or no community transmission after June 7, the CECC will further loosen epidemic control measures. As long as the public can cooperate with the new “Contact-Information-Based Measures”” and observe personal preventive precautions, including washing hands frequently, wearing masks where social distancing can’t be followed, restrictions on the number of people allowed in a place when they go out or attend social activities will be lifted.
We are a foreign government agency and would like to know how we can obtain donations of anti-epidemic materials from Taiwan?
1. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has announced on May 5, 2020 that MOFA is launching a third wave of international humanitarian assistance in response to the continued spread of COVID-19, donating 7.07 million face masks to the United States, European Union and its member states, diplomatic allies, New Southbound Policy partner countries, and African and Middle Eastern nations. The R.O.C. government announced two earlier waves of humanitarian assistance on April 1 and April 9, 2020, donating face masks and other medical supplies to support frontline medical personnel as they fight the pandemic in countries that have been severely affected.
2. If you have any inquiries about how to obtain donations of anti-epidemic materials from Taiwan, please contact the MOFA overseas offices
What steps have been taken by the Taiwan CDC to prevent imported cases?
For inbound travelers with upper respiratory symptoms who do not meet the criteria of compulsory transfer to hospital, they are required to complete the “Communicable Disease Survey Form” and receive “Notification of Compulsory Quarantine for Arriving Passengers with Suspicious Symptoms.”
What are the “Epidemic New Life Movement” measures being promoted in Taiwan?
Citizens can feel safe to shop and dine at any shops and restaurants meeting the following epidemic control requirements:
- Social distancing：1.5 indoor an 1m outdoor, with alternate seat arrangements or partitions between seats.
- Personal hygiene and protection：Wear masks, measure body temperature, and provide washing/cleaning agents for hands at entrances or in the venues.
- Real name system：Register customer names and implement customer traffic control.
Taiwan has achieved an extraordinary accomplishment in the domestic supply management of COVID-19 prevention products such as face masks and protective apparel. How did Taiwan do it?
After receiving first confirmed case on Jan. 21, the Taiwan government immediately executed export restriction on face mask and control the distribution of taken in a week. In the meantime, over 80 companies worked together through government’s coordination to build 92 mask production lines and began to run in 2 month which increased daily supply from 4 million to 13 million.
What products are under export restrictions?
In order to meet domestic demand, face masks made from non-woven materials (6/30), medical alcohol and sanitizers with drug license (no certain date yet) are not allowed to export according to the official announcement from the Executive Yuan. Melt-blown non-woven, ear straps and mask production machines are also under government’s control and have to be approved by the MOEA (Ministry of Economic Affairs) before being exported.
