Covid-19 is a virus that started in late 2019 in China. Since then, it has spread rapidly around the world. Let's look at the statistics of those infected and died from this virus worldwide:
One country is successfully resisting this dangerous virus. Taiwan has the lowest mortality rate of Covid-19 in the world. Let's look at the statistics:
Today, there are only 7 COVID-19 deaths in Taiwan. 7 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, since the beginning of this year. How one country, with 23-25 million inhabitants and a high population density (one-meter distance is far more challenging here) managed to save its population not only from virus, but also from isolation, restaurants, and schools closing. I will remind you that Taiwan is very close to China, where it all began.
Today we put our name in the face of this great success. It is Audrey Tang, Taiwan's minister of digital technology.
She is 38 years old, she was born in the body of a boy and her name at birth was Autrijus. She has an incredibly high IQ, at the age of 8 she learned to code, while at the age of 14 she left school to start her own start-up company at the age of 16. At 24 he became Audrey, and at 33 she retired. She worked as a hacker and in 2016 she became very engaged in the ranks of activist organizations that fought against China's interference in Taiwan's democracy.
She is the first transgender minister. She led a generation of young people in the IT sector and became the Minister of New Technologies. Her, as well as the government's goal, is to involve all citizens in building the society in which they live. Inclusiveness. She imposes the ideas of post-gender and anarchic conservatism, very intriguing and progressive ideas. She turned against trolls, who, she believes, only destroy society and do not lead to its unification.
Dr. Li Wenliang first talked about a new virus circulating and lung attack in December 2019 and the Taiwanese government took this very seriously. They introduced testing for all Wuhan passengers than introduced mandatory masks in public space very quickly, masks were free, they tracked down contacts efficiently, while infected people had to stay home and download the app that checked on them. Non-compliance with quarantine was severely punishable, 6 months in prison or a € 30.000 fine.
Audrey Tang has therefore participated in these proposals, as well as in the development of technologies that will be able to track the sick. She also advocated making various jokes on the Internet that influenced people on social networks not to believe in conspiracy theories and not to buy too many things in shops. She uses the Internet the way we should all do it. For the sake of uniting one nation and suppressing everything that is harmful to mental and physical health.
Some would characterize these measures as a dictatorship. However, Taiwan counts today only 7 dead from the COVID-19. Freedom of speech and movement is crucial in today's democracies in the West, that is why the strict measures are often strongly criticized. Despite the fact that sooner or later, almost all countries enhanced them. While in the same West, faith in the government is declining, in Taiwan it has been achieved exactly the opposite, and the tools we have today have been used for the right purposes.
The Taiwanese government, including the minister Andrey Tang, has shown supreme responsibility to its citizens in the fight against the virus.
What can other countries learn from the example of Taiwan?
Has any other country fought the virus so successfully?
