Impression from Vicariate Taiwan

When the first cases of the disease appeared in Taiwan, our government was able to draw on the experience of the Sars epidemic, 17 years ago and responded immediately. The hygiene regulations were tightened, face masks became obligatory and there was a ban on visiting our nursing home. It was a difficult time for our residents and also for the relatives.
50 handicapped children and teenagers live in the home for disabled people. In January, the government introduced the first regulations for this home: taking the temperature daily, disinfection of hands, wearing a face mask. The employees who came from their home also had to follow these instructions. No groups of visitors and no relatives were allowed to enter the house.
All social organisations were instructed to draw up a plan to counteract the pandemic.
