The Taiwan show is a popular event.

The Taiwanese government and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), which promotes the Taiwan International Boat Show, have responded to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement, the Taiwanese government said it “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.”

Measures being taken to control the spread of the virus within Taiwan include:

  • Using active surveillance and screening systems at all major airports and ports of entry.
  • Visitors who experience symptoms, such as fever or coughing, after arriving in Taiwan must notify an officer at a quarantine station at an airport or port.
  • If symptoms develop within 14 days of arriving in Taiwan, patients must immediately wear a surgical mask and call the Epidemic Prevention Line for immediate medical attention.
  • Within 24 hours, Taiwan’s medical institutions must report and isolate patients with a fever above 100.4 degrees.
  • Infection control drills are being conducted in Taiwan at healthcare facilities.
  • Severe restrictions have been placed on visitors from China.
