    Taiwan still on track for gradual reopening as CECC reports 30 local cases (2021/07/22)

    The Central Epidemic Command Center reported 30 local and three imported cases on Thursday. With the Level 3 alert possibly to expire on July 26, Taiwan wants to know what will happen next week. Health minister Chen Shih-chung said the government may allow the reopening of some businesses, like licensed spa centers, starting next week. But he said adult entertainment facilities like karaoke parlors and saunas may need to wait longer.

    Chen Shih-chung
    Today we have 30 local cases, 20 detected during isolation. We also have three imported cases.

    After two days of just over a dozen local cases, Taiwan’s daily case count jumped to 30 on Thursday. The health minister was asked if this would change plans to downgrade the Level 3 alert next week.

    Chen Shih-chung
    We are working hard in the direction of lowering the COVID alert. We have almost finalized the relevant guidelines. We have yet to see a significant rise in cases with an unknown infection source. So the direction we’re moving in remains the same.

    Of the 30 new local cases, 24 can be traced back to a known infection source. The health minister said that plans will continue to lower the Level 3 alert. But he said the government needs more time to finalize its reopening guidelines, which were originally to be released by Friday.

    Chen Shih-chung
    The relevant guidelines for reopening remain under discussion. The eight major adult entertainment businesses can expect to wait longer for their reopening. Any downgrade of the COVID alert will need to be gradual.

    With the epidemic easing, the Executive Yuan is considering lowering Level 3, although it’s emphasized that some businesses will not be allowed to reopen right away. For instance, licensed spa and massage centers may get the green light first, while adult entertainment facilities have to wait. Even after the alert is lowered, handwashing, mask wearing, and social distancing will still be required.

    The government says that vaccines will be key to a full reopening. So far more than 24% of the population has received at least one dose, putting Taiwan well on track to hit the goal of 25% by the end of the month.

    Also on Thursday, Chen spoke about why Taiwan was delaying second Moderna doses beyond 28 days.

    Chen Shih-chung
    Our first three priority groups can still get the second dose within four weeks of the first. But all other Moderna vaccine recipients will need to wait 10 to 12 weeks between doses. This change is based on studies that have shown one dose of Moderna can achieve 81% protection.
