Taiwan donates thousands more masks to Colorado
On August 28, Jerry Chang, Director General, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Denver presented 10,000 surgical masks on behalf of the Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce of North America (TCCNA) to local organizations including the Asian Pacific Development Center and Happy Living Adult Daycare.
“We are here to convey a message that Taiwan is together with the great state of Colorado through the global pandemic,” said Chang.
The gathering was organized by Asian Chamber of Commerce outside the Tri-State/Denver Buddhist Temple.
“Taiwan’s response to the coronavirus has been widely reported as one of the best models in the world. Today, Taiwan is among the least affected countries with all businesses schools open as normal,” said Chang in his remarks.
Taiwan has donated supplies and masks to countries around the world.
“Both Taiwan’s incidence rate per capita and fatality rate are among the lowest in the world. With a population of 23 million, Taiwan has recorded only 487 confirmed cases with seven deaths as of today. Most importantly, we have not seen any local infection for four months.”
