Taiwan races to avert first lockdown, save Covid success story


Taiwan is racing to contain its worst outbreak of the coronavirus, aiming to protect public health while averting a full lockdown that could derail what has been one of the outstanding health and economic success stories of the pandemic.
The government urged companies to allow staff to work from home or split locations after reporting a record 206 new local cases on Sunday. This came after authorities put the capital Taipei and the surrounding New Taipei City into a soft lockdown, limiting the sizes of indoor and outdoor gatherings and shutting most recreational facilities and businesses.
Hospitals are cutting down outpatient services and will bar medical tourism to preserve resources.
