Tsai unscrupulously exploiting epidemic

By Tang Yonghong | China Daily | Updated: 2020-02-14 00:00

While the Chinese mainland is making the utmost efforts to control the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the Taiwan administration of Tsai Ing-wen is trying to manipulate the epidemic as a means to formally join the World Health Organization, to get the island recognized as a "sovereign nation".

The trick has won some applause in the West, as the Taiwan authorities have made it seem like they are merely trying to safeguard the health of residents on the island.

When Tsai met with Giuseppe Izzo, chairman of the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan on Feb 3, she complained that the World Health Organization, which is the United Nations body responsible for health matters, is excluding it.
