    No new COVID-19 cases in recent days; another patient recovers (2020/02/13)

    There was relief Thursday as it was announced there have been no new cases of coronavirus diagnosed in the past few days, leaving Taiwan's number of cases at 18. Meanwhile health minister Chen Shih-chung said the 10th person to be diagnosed, a man in his 40s, has recovered and is soon to be released from hospital.

    The briefing starts with rare good news: There are no new cases of coronavirus. The 10th case, a China-based businessman diagnosed late January, had tested negative three times and would soon be allowed out of isolation and released from the hospital.

    Voice of coronavirus patient
    I’m completely willing to stay in isolation, if that will keep everyone else, including my family, safe. I was so moved when I saw Chen Shih-chung tearing up at the press conference. Thank you, I’m so grateful for all of you. It really is such a blessing to have been born in Taiwan.

    The evacuees who returned from Wuhan have now been in isolation for 10 days. They are scheduled to be free to leave on Feb. 18. But after the controversy surrounding the choice of evacuees allowed onto the first flight, there has been a holdup in further evacuation flights. A Chinese spouse of a Taiwanese citizen has written directly to President Tsai Ing-wen, asking her to not turn her back on half-Taiwanese children still trapped in Wuhan.

    Of course there is concern about them remaining in that environment. We’re doing all we can to find a solution. But there are real difficulties to be resolved. We will continue doing our best to communicate with China.

    Chen made an emotional appeal for the people of Taiwan to pull together in solidarity through the crisis. Meanwhile, another case has been diagnosed in Singapore: a croupier from the famous Sentosa Casino. Authorities urge anyone who visited the casino between Feb. 4 and 9, who develops symptoms in the next two weeks, to seek medical attention immediately.
