This week, we take a moment to stop and smell the roses (literally) and reflect on the past year since Taiwan locked down its borders on March 19, 2020. Staś Butler runs through some key numbers that paint a picture of how Taiwan handled COVID-19.
We also speak with the CDC’s Dr. Yang Chin-Hui, who lays out plans for vaccinating the nation.
