LEO’S NOTES FOR VIDEO:
UK Government has announced a Green list of 12 destinations
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
St Helena, Tristan de Cunha, Ascension Island
You will note that Taiwan is missing from the list, despite its stellar virus containment, and most likely that is because Taiwan does not officially exist.
We can turn to a video produced by the Economist that explains the fascinating history of Taiwan over the past 80 years
The Economist ‘Is Taiwan part of China?’
TSMC will spend US$100 billion in the next three years with US$30 billion ‘this year’
