Taiwan has seen the first suspected community-transmitted case of the coronavirus. To prevent community spread, Taiwan has expanded its screening measures to include any individuals with foreign travel history in the past 14 days.
The mysterious new strain of the coronavirus has penetrated Taiwan and the United States. International health organisations urge caution.
In order to put an end to the outbreak, no new cases can emerge for four weeks. This is double the maximum incubation period of the MERS virus.
