Taiwan -  falling infections and eased anti-COVID policies.  Taiwan is trying to reopen its borders by resuming visa-free entry for visitors from the U.S., Europe and some other departure points, starting next week.
 

China Times》editorial, 2022-9-7: All of Taiwan's CovID-19 policies have been lagging behind, much slower than other countries.  Now Taiwan orders BA.1 vaccines, an outdated model of the next-generation vaccine.  Why is the government not willing to purchase the most updated vaccine targets BA.5?  Is there any "calculation" under table ??  chinatimes.com/opinion/20220907005076-262101?chdtv

◆ 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
