May Day in China was comparatively far quieter than previous years as ‘zero-Covid’ measures restricted people’s ability to travel while enforced lockdowns are in place in several cities.
Beijing opted to rule out dine-in services in restaurants this Labor Day to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
On the contrary, Taiwan will not be following suit by imposing strict measures in future, according to statements by Premier Su Tseng-chang.
Taiwan Centers for Disease Control stated, “On May 1, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced 17,085 new confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Taiwan. Of the 17,085 new cases, 16,936 are domestic and 149 are imported (138 of them tested positive after landing). The CECC also announced three deaths today.”
Taiwan has dealt with a surge in infections, but the government has sought normalcy by easing restrictions.
