TMAF is very aware of the coronavirus outbreak. Taiwan is unfortunately lumped into the greater China region and gets the unjustified reputation as an area of contagion.
According to data collated by Johns Hopkins CSSE, there are 23 confirmed cases in Taiwan with one fatality. The fatality being a cab driver who took a passenger returning from China. The case numbers are similar to the US (29 cases with no fatality). The US government has no warnings nor travel advisories for Taiwan.
TMAF continues to monitor the situation closely. During the festival, volunteers will include senior doctors. The current situation is obviously fluid, but please know Taiwan has one of the finest health care system in the world. Participants' well being is TMAF's absolute priority.
