    King of Eswatini reveals he was treated for COVID by Taiwan doctors in January (2021/02/23)

    The King of Eswatini has revealed he was treated for a COVID infection by a team of Taiwan doctors in January. His Majesty King Mswati III made the unexpected revelation in the Parliament of Eswatini. The country is currently Taiwan's only diplomatic ally in Africa. We spoke to Dr. Wei Po-li of Taipei Medical University Hospital, about the top-secret medical diplomacy mission.

    Mswati III(February 19)
    King of Eswatini
    I am grateful to the president of the Republic of China, Taiwan, for sending through this medication to help treat me.

    Speaking in the Eswatini parliament, King Mswati revealed that he caught COVID at the start of this year. The head of Taiwan's only African ally thanked Taiwan for its medical assistance. A team of five from Taipei Medical University Hospital was dispatched to Eswatini.

    Dr. Wei Po-li
    Taipei Medical University Hospital
    The king's was not a severe case, in fact, so we proceeded with a course of treatment for a mild case. Within a week his viral load began to fall.

    Seven of the king's wives were also diagnosed with the virus. TMUH sent the emergency team of five doctors on a 12-hour charter flight to the country, to provide a month of treatment.

    Dr. Wei Po-li
    Taipei Medical University Hospital
    His status is rather special, so we viewed it very cautiously. We administered many treatments after appropriate discussions between our team of experts and local doctors.

    The mission was top secret until now, with even the doctors' families unaware of its details. The team video-called with the hospital daily, however, to discuss the situation. They returned to Taiwan just before Lunar New Year.

    Dr. Wei Po-li
    Taipei Medical University Hospital
    Before returning to Taiwan, the king held an audience with the whole team, to express his utmost gratitude. I want to stress that this was our small contribution to our "citizen diplomacy," which we feel very happy about.

    The medical mission will be certain to shore up Taiwan's diplomatic ties with the Kingdom.

    史瓦帝尼國王、7妃子染疫台灣萬里送藥治癒!

    台灣在非洲唯一的友邦史瓦帝尼王國,他們的國王恩史瓦帝三世,在國會致詞,透露自己年初確診武漢肺炎,但因為台灣贈送的抗病毒藥物,讓他成功康復。北醫更秘密派出5人醫護團隊跨海到當地救援,副院長代表院方受訪,表示很開心能為國民外交盡一份力。

    [[史瓦帝尼國王恩史瓦帝三世(2.19)]]
    "我非常感謝台灣的總統,他們給我治療武漢肺炎的藥物。"

    突然在國會致詞,感謝台灣,台灣在非洲唯一的友邦史瓦帝尼,國王恩史瓦帝三世,自爆年初確診武肺,但來不及宣布確診,就已經康復,全靠台灣藥物幫忙,醫療團隊來自台北醫學大學附屬醫院。

    [[北醫附醫副院長 魏柏立]]
    "其實國王的病症並不嚴重,所以就是依著輕症相關治療療程執行,在(治療)一週的時候,他的病毒量就開始減少了。"

    國王的7名妃子也相繼確診,北醫緊急徵召5人團隊,搭專機,飛了12小時才抵達史瓦帝尼,進行為期一個月的治療。

    [[北醫附醫副院長 魏柏立]]
    "他的身分比較特別,所以我們特別謹慎去看。很多的治療其實是透過我們的專家團,跟他們當地的醫師做適當的溝通之後,進行一些相關的處置。"

    這趟跨海任務保密到家,連醫護家人都不知情。每天還要跟院方視訊開會,討論病況,5人直到農曆新年前才返台。

    [[北醫附醫副院長 魏柏立]]
    "專家團在回國之前,(國王)有特別召見所有的團員,表達他無上的謝意。那我要強調這是我們在國民外交上能盡一份心力,我們感到非常開心的部分。"

    這次台灣的即時醫療援助,也讓台史友好關係,又再邁進一大步。
