TAIPEI (The China Post) — Taiwan is on the front line of the 2019-nCoV outbreak, still, it is excluded from direct communications with the World Health Organization (WHO) due to political tension with China.

Ahead of the Chinese New Year holiday and the annual migration of local people between northern and southern Taiwan, let’s take just one minute to learn about the SARS-like coronavirus and how to protect yourself and your family with this video produced by the WHO.
