Taiwan has had one of the lowest incidences of Covid-19 in the world since the outbreak of the pandemic. We are now engaging with the relevant authorities locally through the British Office in Taipei as it faces its first significant occurrence of community transmission of the virus. We will continue to work with all of our international partners to deliver a strong global response.
