Taipei, April 14 (CNA) Taiwan's communities are "relatively safe," the health minister said Tuesday while updating the number of new cases of COVID-19 coronavirus infection, which stood at a "delightful" zero for that day.
Chen Shih-chung (陳時中), who also serves as head of the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), called the new figure "a small happiness" during his daily press briefing, expressing hope that the pandemic is coming to an end.
He said that while the number of local infections has been low in Taiwan, he believes communities are relatively safe, implying that there is little chance of community outbreaks in the nation.
However, people should still remain vigilant to avoid infection by the highly contagious and sometimes deadly virus, Chen advised.
