WSWS.org, 2022-6-30: Taiwan experiencing one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in the world wsws.org/en/articles/2022/06/30/fcwb-j30.html
The corporate media has hailed Taipei’s actions as part of the agenda of placing profits before lives...Given the increased use of the more unreliable rapid antigen tests in Taiwan, it is almost certain that the actual number of cases is much higher...Taiwan Falsely claimed that 99.5 percent of cases were mild or asymptomatic... in the words of the Guardianin May, Taipei feels it can lift restrictions, while drawing a false equivalence between virus elimination measures and authoritarianism  brief wsws.org/en/articles/2022/06/30/fcwb-j30.html

 

◆ Global Times, 2022-6-10: "The handling of outbreak also proved that Taiwan's medical and health facilities are inadequate and cannot take care of a large number of patients at the same time, which is completely inconsistent with Taiwan's claim that it has advanced medical and health infrastructure,""In any place where a public health crisis was so badly handled and people's lives were treated carelessly with no respect, the authorities should resign."   globaltimes.cn/page/202206/1267806.shtml

In our survey, 68 percent of respondents agree with the statement that “COVID-19 is a national security threat.” A lower figure (56 percent) perceives “the risk of getting COVID in the next 3 months” as being high for them personally.  ...a poll this week found that 70 percent of Taiwanese wanted the government to retain stricter border control policies.    washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/06/02/taiwan-covid-relaxed-border-policy/
