President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Tuesday released a Facebook video in which she praised Taiwan people and government officials for their efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Every scene highlights our true feelings and our most dedicated moments,” she wrote.
“We should not only be proud of protecting ourselves, our families and our country but also using our remaining resources to help other countries,” she added.
President Tsai added that time and viruses are fair to everyone, but in Taiwan, “we face them in a different way than others.”
When Taiwan fought the SARS epidemic on its own, she recalled. It really gave us a good foundation to become stronger and more capable to face the next challenge, she continued.
Everyone is united in fighting this pandemic, she continued.
No one can isolate a friend who genuinely wants to help, President Tsai pointed out, stressing that her goal is to speak to the world on behalf of all the people of Taiwan.
“Taiwan Can Help, Taiwan Is Helping, we are willing to share our expertise; Taiwan model is to stand with the world to fight the epidemic,” she concluded.
