While Health Minister Chen Shih-chung said he was happy to see no new domestic cases, people should not rest on their laurels and let down their guard.
“These two weeks are a very important observation period. I hope it can be maintained. Everyone, please don’t let up,” he told reporters.
Taiwan’s success stands in stark contrast to many of its neighbours, including Vietnam and Japan, where the virus continues to spread rapidly.
Taiwan’s domestic outbreak was almost exclusively the previously globally dominant Alpha variant, rather than the highly contagious Delta variant.
Taiwan has reported 15,939 cases since the pandemic began, including 830 deaths.
