Yesterday in Belmopan, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan), H.E. Remus Li-Kou Chen, donated 400 wheelchairs to the Minister of Health, Pablo Marin. The donation was done on behalf of two Taiwanese non-governmental organizations, namely “Puh Sien Foundation” and “Cao Zhong Zhi Foundation.” The wheelchairs will be distributed to hospitals in all six districts of Belize for those who are in need. In a statement by H.E. Chen, he spoke about COVID-19. He stated that some Belizeans have reached out to the Taiwanese Embassy to inquire how their country has managed to tackle the virus. In short, they stated that they took the situation seriously, and have established a comprehensive national disease prevention mechanism in the early stage of the outbreak. This included digitized disease monitoring systems, stringent border quarantine measures, advanced medical resources, and concise guidelines for the general public. Every building in Taiwan offers hand sanitizer, and many of them, such as schools, are requiring that anyone entering will submit to body temperature checks. As a result, Taiwan’s disease prevention achievements outperform many developed countries in Asia and Europe. He also assured the Belizean public not to worry about the two radiologists and five nurses from Belize who are currently training in Taiwan. H.E. Chen reminds the public that while Taiwan has earned its reputation of having one of the best healthcare systems in the world, they are still being excluded from the World Health Organization (WHO). He ended the statement by commending Minister Marin and CEO George Gough for supporting Taiwan’s participation in the WHO.
