Taiwan and the United States are joining efforts to train more medical personnel to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus in the Asia-Pacific region, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced recently.
As part of the Taiwan-U.S cooperation, the program will take place at a disease control and prevention facility in Tainan which opened on March 22. The United States has already trained a group of Taiwanese personnel as seed instructors for the program.
The program also will be joined by a total of 18 trainees and instructors from countries including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has already claimed about 10,000 lives so far, and the international community has continued to pool efforts to curb the spread of the virus.
