TAIPEI (The China Post) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情中心) announced on Monday that 460,000 people had joined the face masks donation campaign as of today 12 p.m.

“I hope more people would join in the humanitarian aid campaign. Let’s see if we can have more than 1 million people participate in the campaign with a total of 10 million face masks this week,” said the Minister of Health and Welfare Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) who heads the CECC.

The CECC launched the campaign last week in the hope of giving Taiwan nationals an opportunity to lend their hand to other people struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.

The center urged people to support the campaign and keep donating face masks to assist countries struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.
