Covid-19 pneumonia is spreading all over the world. The OCAC said that in order to meet the urgent needs of the overseas compatriots, the Executive Yuan decided to allocate 500,000 medical masks for them.
The OCAC Minister Hsin-hsing Wu said that although the government has deregulated the public to send medical masks to relatives such as overseas spouses or second-degree relatives, some compatriots in Europe and the United States report that there are no second-degree relatives in Taiwan, so the Central Epidemic Command Center recently agreed to allocate 50,000 masks to the OCAC, and all of them have been sent to overseas offices of the OCAC. Besides, the OCAC purchased 200 thousand cloth masks, and send them to overseas compatriots before May 10th.
