Taiwan reports over 12,000 new infections after moving away from zero-COVID strategy

COVID-19 cases in Taiwan hit another record high on Apr 29 with over 12,000 new infections. The surge has put to test President Tsai Ing-wen’s resolve to coexist with the coronavirus. Health minister Chen Shih-chung has said the government will stick to its new approach of coexisting with the coronavirus, and there are no immediate plans to tighten measures. Authorities are expecting new cases to top 40,000 to 100,000 a day. The rise in new cases has caused a run on home test kits, forcing the government to ration sales.
