Abstract

Background: Initially projected to be the fourth most at-risk country for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) because of its close ties with China (1), Taiwan, on 21 December 2020, marked 253 consecutive days without a locally transmitted case, and a cumulative total of 770 cases (675 imported) and 7 deaths (2). Despite imported cases, Taiwan has successfully contained COVID-19 without a national lockdown (Figure 1).
