One more patient has died. No chronic conditions, about 40-year-old man, had been to the USA.
An article was written by a German researcher, Nicholas Martin, said that prevention of Taiwan model is not easy to imitate, Taiwan got 93/100 score in the ranking of Freedom House for 2019, German got 94/100 score. On this imperative basis, Taiwan is impossible to infringe upon basic human rights as a cost for prevention. So how do we to find the balance between democracy and restriction?
一篇德國研究員寫的文章說臺灣的防疫模式難以複製，臺灣在 2019 年自由之家的評比中台灣得分 93/100，德國 94/100。在這個重要的基礎之下，臺灣不可能以侵害人權為代價做防疫。所以我們到底怎麼在民主自由與限制人身自由間找到平衡點？
In a nutshell, Taiwan had had experience from the SARS, after that disaster of the century, revised the law in order to do the epidemical prevention more efficient. Checking the travel history, and the CECC has authority in this urgent situation, this what the real “advanced deployment” is. So this is hard to copy the model now for other countries, time can’t go back, others should learn it from this time, coronavirus.
簡而言之，臺灣有 SARS 經驗，自從那場世紀災難之後改寫了法律以便在傳染病防治中快速發揮作用。檢查旅遊史、中央疫情指揮中心有絕對權利處理緊急狀況，這是真正的「超前部署」。所以這樣對其他國家才難以複製，時間無法倒流，其他國家只能從這次武漢肺炎的經驗中學習。
Reading these perspectives is interesting, we found out some details that we didn’t realise. Here is no doubt towards the travel history checking and health records. But there is plenty of debates about if it’s legal to forbid some particular businesses to close down? Maybe the commander of the CECC is the most influential politician ever in recent years also is key, all giants obeyed the order, that’s impossible before. He got 93% satisfaction from the survey. This is the most challenging part for other countries, even in Taiwan that no other one could do this so successful as him.
閱讀這些觀點頗有趣，我們發現了很多之前不曾注意到的細節。調閱旅遊資料、病歷資料，是沒有什麼問題的。但其實有很多人在爭論法源到底能不能涵蓋到禁止特種行業營業？也許指揮官陳時中是近年來最具影響力的政治家也是關鍵，所有大型企業都遵循他的指揮，這在過去根本是不可能的。他得到了 93% 的民調滿意度。對其他國家來說這才是最挑戰的部分，就算在臺灣也沒有其他人能做到像他這樣成功。
Aside from that, at least there is one easy thing that all countries could do:
Please wear masks, okay?
