Taiwan’s top smart fitness solutions for boosting energy and well-being
 
Given the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, it has become even more important to keep one’s immune system up and healthy.

According to the World Health Organization, adults should maintain moderate daily physical activity in order to enhance muscular strength and physical wellness. Doctors also urged that during the epidemic prevention period, regular exercising at home can help increase immunity and resist getting sick.

Taiwan exported US$2.12 billion worth of sporting goods in 2019, up 9.29% from 2018. A significant amount of the increase was driven by the growing fitness and sporting equipment market. Brands from Taiwan are among the top industry players in the world, including Johnson, Dyaco, and SportsArt Fitness, Inc.

This year, TAITRA will hold the TaiSPO tradeshow (together with TAIPEI CYCLE) on 14-16 May at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 2 (TaiNEX 2).

Taiwan to be the 2nd largest surgical mask producer

Facing a worldwide supply shortage of surgical masks during the global COVID-19 outbreak, the Taiwan government, fast collaborating with local industry technology research institutes as well as smart-machinery & automation sectors, will increase mask production to meet the demand domestically, and in the process turn Taiwan into the 2nd largest surgical mask producer in the world.

The collaboration with industry sectors has effectively reduced the production cycle of mask equipment from 2 months to 1 week and completed 60 production lines from six months to just one month, ready to produce 10 million pieces per day by the end of February to early March.

Taiwan plays a crucial role in global machine tool industry. Taiwan is the 7th largest machine tool maker, with 80% of products exported to 138 countries. The exported value stood at 3.06 billion U.S dollar in 2019, making Taiwan the 5th largest machine tool exporter in the world.

Taiwan’s machinery clusters are based in Taichung, with over 1,500 machine tool makers and 10,000 satellite firms nearby, enabling flexible production, specialties sharing, and short lead times. Such comprehensive and high-density clusters also made Taiwan’s machine tools industries highly competitive and customer-oriented, offering high quality products through efficient and cost-effective operations.

In recent years, a growing number of machinery manufacturers are making the leap to smart machinery production, utilizing a combination of automation technology, Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI).

TAITRA will hold SOURCING TAIWAN 2020- a sourcing event featuring quality suppliers of Machinery x Hand tool x Bicycle x Automotive electronics on July 15th (Wednesday) in Taichung where important industry clusters are based.

Taiwan’s high-tech safeguards protect the public from the global Covid-19 outbreak

Amid the growing number of confirmed cases of coronavirus infections globally, Taiwan has been effective in curbing the outbreak by moving swiftly to deploy necessary precautions to ensure public health and safety.

A recent example of how Taiwan has leveraged its IT expertise involves the coordination of health and travel data. In an effort to identify citizens with or at risk of having the Coronavirus, Taiwan has pioneered and implemented a cloud system to connect its citizens’ health insurance or identity cards with customs data on travel histories. By accessing this data via health insurance cards, Taiwanese doctors can immediately check the patient's travel contact history to help the doctors to more precisely diagnose and treat patients with flu-like symptoms and offer them the best medical care.

Another example of the proactive effort involves measures to prevent the hoarding of surgical masks. To help all citizens acquire facial masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the government rapidly stockpiled all masks in Taiwan and enforced a real-name purchase policy that only allows people to purchase a limited number of masks in one week. Mobile phone apps have also been quickly developed to let citizens know where masks are available for purchase and how many are left in stock.

Taiwan’s government wasted no time to work closely with health and immigration services as well as the domestic IT industry to effectively control and limit the spread of the Coronavirus.

***As of today, Friday Feb 14, the outbreak has reached a total of 64,437 confirmed cases reported worldwide. As of writing, Taiwan has a total of 18 confirmed cases, none of which were community-acquired cases, and no new confirmed cases have been reported since Feb 9. Moreover, one of the confirmed cases has fully recovered, and the remaining 17 are on the way to a full recovery and are in stable condition. The risk of infection to international travelers within Taiwan is considered low to minimal.

**The latest reports state that the number of total confirmed cases in China, including Hong Kong (53) and Macau (10), is 63,962, followed by a cruise ship currently in international conveyance (218), Singapore (58), Thailand (33), Japan (33), Republic of Korea (28), Malaysia (19), Taiwan (18), Germany (16), Vietnam (16), Australia (15), United States of American (15), and France (11), UK (9), UAE (8), and Canada (7).

Taiwan Assures Health and Safety to Global Visitors During Global COVID-19 Outbreak
 
Greetings from Taiwantrade.com, Taiwan and TAITRA.

In response to the global outbreak of the COVID-19(2019-nCoV or Wuhan Pneumonia), the Taiwan government has taken comprehensive measures to protect the health of the public from the global outbreak.

All events and activities held by TAITRA for international visitors are conducted in full and stringent compliance with health and safety regulations and there is no danger posed to exhibitions and meeting venues in Taiwan.  

From the airport to the hotel to the venue and back, visitors can rest assured that they will be safe to visit Taiwan.

In the extremely unlikely event that anyone displays symptoms of the COVID-19 – or any other disease or illness – visitors can be reassured that Taiwan’s healthcare system and medical sector is continually ranked as one of the top healthcare systems in the world.

Visitors can expect the highest standards for medical assistance, including multiple treatment rooms on hand with the most advanced medical equipment available anywhere in the world.

Taiwan reacted swiftly to news of the COVID-19 outbreak and the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (TCDC) immediately activated the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) in order to integrate resources across the government and networks of public health experts.

Measures being taken to effectively control any spread of the COVID-19 within Taiwan include the following:
•     Operating active surveillance and screening systems for disease control, such as Infrared Thermal Image Scanning (ITIS), at all major airports and ports to ensure the safety and well-being of visitors to Taiwan.
•     Visitors who experience symptoms such as fever or cough upon arriving in Taiwan must notify an officer at the quarantine station in the airport or port.
•     If the aforementioned symptoms develop within 14 days after arriving in Taiwan, sufferers must immediately wear a surgical mask and call the Epidemic Prevention Line 1922 to seek immediate medical attention. Failing to report truthfully will be fined in accordance with Article 69 of the Law on Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Disease.
•     Within 24 hours, Taiwan’s medical institutions must report and isolate patients with a fever above 38 degrees, patients with respiratory symptoms like coughs and signs of pneumonia, and patients who have been to Wuhan, China in the preceding 14 days before the onset of illness. Failing to comply with the regulation will result in maximum penalty of 2 million TWD.
•     Infection control drills are being conducted locally in Taiwan at healthcare facilities to minimize the impact of the outbreak, and guidance for public transportation, public gatherings and educational institutions on prevention measures have been issued to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19.
•     Severe restrictions have been placed on visitors to Taiwan from China, the source of the COVID-19, including prohibiting, postponing and suspending tourist, student and business travel applications. More detailed information can be found via this link:
https://www.cdc.gov.tw/En/Bulletin/Detail/AbXx37glDFCRtGihlDGOmA?typeid=158 

For more general information, please visit the Taiwan CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov.tw, or call the toll-free Communicable Disease Reporting and Consultation Hotline, 1922 (or 0800-001922).

The WHO has warned that the COVID-19 is spreading throughout China and across the world. However, as of January 31,2020, Taiwan has only 9 confirmed cases of the virus with 0 deaths, and those with the illness are in a stable and non-life threatening condition.

The most up-to-date report can be found on the WHO website: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019 

In 2019, CEOWORLD magazine Health Care Index ranked Taiwan as having “the best healthcare system in the world”:
