TAIPEI (The China Post) — As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen, Taiwan’s stellar record and virus-prevention measures have been greatly lauded among the international community.

In light of this, creative products promoting Taiwan’s efforts have been selling like hotcakes on the Internet, and a mug with the words “I don’t need THERAPY, I just need to go to TAIWAN” is the most popular at this moment with a five-star rating and more than 5,000 comments.

Social media users discovered the cute mug on Amazon and Etsy and shared it with other additional merchandise, including T-shirts and tank tops with the same captions.

The merchandise can be found on the “Spreadshirt” shopping platform.

However, the price may not be agreeable to some as the mug costs around NT$438 while the T-shirt is priced at around NT$536.

Some were still adamant about getting their hands on it, and several social media users replied, “the mug looks great and the design is interesting,” while others planned to get it for friends and family living abroad.
