Experience Handling SARS

The 2003 SARS epidemic hit Taiwan particularly hard, so the government implemented many policies and structures to prevent future epidemics in the country.

Hospitals across Taiwan have drills to prepare in case another epidemic emerges. Hospitals are also required to stockpile N95 masks and have a certain amount in storage at all times. SARS also provided valuable education regarding disease prevention and showcased the importance of isolation as a preventative measure.
