外交部推出短片「翻轉人生」 展現臺灣優質醫療與貢獻

2020-04-27

日期:2020/04/23 資料來源:公眾外交協調會 值此武漢肺炎(COVID-19)疫情持續蔓延全球之際,臺灣政府與全民合力成功防疫及各項援外行動漸獲舉世矚目,外交部於4月23日發表最新策製短片「翻轉人生」(英文片名:Looking Up Again),向國際社會展現臺灣先進醫療技術,並藉此向世界傳遞全球健康「臺灣能幫忙,臺灣正在幫忙」的訊息。 本片敘述關島一位久治不癒的髖關節及脊椎重症患者,在對人生逐漸感到灰心喪志之際,經由友人轉介跨海來臺就醫,得以再度「抬頭、仰望天空」重獲新生。片中主角Ted原是一口氣可舉起55加侖橡木桶的壯漢,但不幸罹患髖關節及脊椎病變之後,腰部關節嚴重變形,長達9年的時間,看似簡單平凡的日常生活,如行走、駕車、釣魚,甚至睡覺,都因疼痛及姿勢障礙而成為不可能實現的奢求。 正當Ted對每況愈下的健康憂心不已之際,經由朋友建議,於去(108)年由家人陪伴前來臺灣中國醫藥大學附設醫院接受治療。在經過左右髖關節和脊椎共3次手術及臺灣醫療團隊完善照護下,終可再次抬頭挺胸,不再疼痛,能一夜好眠,並能與友人共享海釣所帶來的生活樂趣。 片尾當Ted走進咖啡廳坐下享受悠閒午後,看著手中照片他與家人和臺灣醫療團隊的燦爛笑容,對照此刻所擁有的全新人生,不禁有感而發地寫下:「謝謝,臺灣」(Thank You, TAIWAN),並以英文及查莫洛語表達他對臺灣的感激之情(Thank You, Si Yu'os Ma'åse'),見證臺灣的先進醫療與回饋國際社會的愛心。 關島醫療資源匱乏,當地病患過去多選擇到鄰近國家就診,近年臺灣優質醫療在當地口耳相傳下,選擇來臺就醫患者逐年成長,其中不乏各界菁英,而本片主角Ted,即來自當地政治世家。 外交部希望透過短片,讓國際社會瞭解臺灣在落實聯合國永續發展目標,確保及促進全人類各年齡層健康與福祉上所作的努力,並呼籲國際社會支持臺灣參與世界衛生組織,共同為全球公衛及防疫工作貢獻心力。 本次外交部先推出1分鐘精華版,隨後將推出4分鐘完整版,全片英語發音。除配製中、英文字幕版外,亦製作日、法、西、德、印尼、泰、越、俄等共10種語言字幕版,同步上線向全球放送。民眾除可透過外交部官方臉書粉絲專頁觀賞,亦可在「潮台灣」(Trending Taiwan)YouTube頻道暨臉書專頁瀏覽,歡迎點閱分享。 潮台灣YouTube頻道10種語版連結: 中文版 English 日本語 Français Español Deutsch Bahasa indonesia ไทย Tiếng Việt русский

台灣獲CNN選為「4大防疫成功國」之一 靠4招破解「超悲觀確診案例預估」

2020-04-23

撰文:林信男 分類:國際瞭望 圖檔來源:中央流行疫情指揮中心提供 日期:2020-04-17 15:50 COVID-19(武漢肺炎)疫情肆虐全球,各國政府在防堵疫情之際,也積極找尋抗疫有成的借鏡對象;對此,美國有線電視新聞網(CNN)彙整了台灣、冰島、德國與南韓的防疫措施,並將台灣經驗列在首位,提出值得他國學習的「4堂防疫課」。 報導指出,台灣鄰近中國,約翰霍普金斯大學原本預估,1月底時,台灣確診案例將增至「全球第2多」;然而,截至4月16日,台灣累計確診僅395例、6例死亡,且16日當天為「零確診」。 報導稱,台灣是在沒有實施大規模居家避疫、封城、停課措施的情況下,繳出上述防疫成果;若美國採取台灣的成功模式,並將人口差異條件納入考量,估計該國只會有83人因染疫死亡。 CNN認為,台灣擁有高品質的全民健保,但抗疫成功的關鍵,仍在於「及早準備」、「迅速反應」、「篩檢、追蹤與隔離」,以及「善用數據和科技」等4項值得他國借鏡的「課題」。 ▲約翰霍普金斯大學原預估,1月底時,台灣確診案例將增至「全球第2多」。(圖:翻攝自約翰霍普金斯大學官網). 一、及早準備 2003年,嚴重急性呼吸道症候群(SARS)疫情襲台,導致181人病逝,這次的慘痛經驗,讓台灣決定成立中央流行疫情指揮中心;就本次疫情來看,台灣中央流行疫情指揮中心的啟動時間,是1月20日,較全台首例確診出現時間,還早了一天。 在職權確立的前提下,中央流行疫情指揮中心可執行嚴格的防疫措施,不會被冗長的政治程序拖累。美國醫學會期刊(JAMA)發布的清單顯示,台灣中央流行疫情指揮中心在短短3周內,就落實了超過120個工作項目;CNN認為,光是這份清單,就足以作為疫情期間的因應措施操作手冊。 二、迅速反應 在台灣出現首例確診前3周,防疫工作人員,已開始針對來自武漢的班機,進行旅客健康狀況檢查;1月20日,台灣對武漢發布旅遊警示,並透過例行記者會,對外說明疫情發展。 出現首例確診後一周,台灣採用政府發放的手機,觀察居家隔離者,且對中國湖北省祭出旅遊和入境禁令;4月1日,當台灣宣布實施「保持社交距離」措施時,確診案例僅329例;相較之下,英國首相強生(Boris Johnson)於3月20日下令關閉酒吧與餐廳時,該國確診案例已超過3000人,共335人病逝。 三、篩檢、追蹤與隔離 台灣政府實施大規模篩檢,追蹤具有接觸史的對象,並要求其確實隔離;即使是被診斷為感冒或一般肺炎的患者,若有疑慮,也會再次進行檢測,以免出現防疫破口。 四、善用數據和科技 台灣將全民健保資料與海關、移民資料庫加以整合,建立預警系統,找出感染風險較高者。史丹佛大學副教授王智弘(Jason Wang)在接受CNN採訪時表示,「大數據和科技的應用,讓政府反應與民眾的配合度,得以協調一致。」 「完善的醫療資料系統,有助監控疾病傳播、及早偵測,當有人因呼吸道症狀就醫時,國家健保資料庫就會記錄,讓疫情追蹤更加容易。」王智弘說。 ▲CNN認為,台灣、冰島、南韓、德國的防疫措施,皆有值得學習之處(數據截至4月16日)。(資料來源:約翰霍普金斯大學、林信男製表) 台、韓、港經濟 可望逃離疫情影響 防疫有成也讓台灣經濟,有機會盡快擺脫疫情衝擊。根據CNBC報導,摩根大通首席全球策略師凱利(David Kelly)指出,疫情使全球主要經濟體陷入「凍結」,但東亞的經濟前景,可望優於其他地區,且2020下半年也是如此。 相較於歐洲、美國,凱利認為,台灣、南韓、香港等地,「更有可能逃離疫情影響」。 凱利預估,美國第2季國內生產毛額(GDP)將大幅下滑,即使新增病例已有趨緩跡象,貿然重啟經濟,仍可能使疫情再度爆發,「對美國來說,在疫苗出現前,這依然是一條相當艱困的道路。」

Taiwan's coronavirus response is among the best globally

2020-04-20

By James Griffiths, CNN Updated 0422 GMT (1222 HKT) April 5, 2020 Hong Kong (CNN)On January 25, as the world was still waking up to the potential danger of the novel coronavirus spreading rapidly out of central China, two governments recorded four new infections within their territory. Australia and Taiwan have similar sized populations of about 24 million people, both are islands, allowing strict controls over who crosses their borders, and both have strong trade and transport links with mainland China. Ten weeks on from that date, however, Australia has almost 5,000 confirmed cases, while Taiwan has less than 400. The question is not what Australia did wrong -- 20 countries have more cases than Australia, and seven have more than 10 times as many -- but how Taiwan has kept the virus under control when other parts of the world have not. Hard learned lessons During the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak of 2003, Taiwan was among the worst-hit territories, along with Hong Kong and southern China. More than 150,000 people were quarantined on the island -- 180 kilometers (110 miles) off China's southeastern coast -- and 181 people died. While SARS now pales in comparison to the current crisis, it sent shockwaves through much of Asia and cast a long shadow over how people responded to future outbreaks. This helped many parts of the region react faster to the current coronavirus outbreak and take the danger more seriously than in other parts of the world, both at a governmental and societal level, with border controls and the wearing of face masks quickly becoming routine as early as January in many areas. Taiwan has a world-class health care system, with universal coverage. As news of the coronavirus began to emerge from Wuhan in the run up to the Lunar New Year, officials at Taiwan's National Health Command Center (NHCC) -- set up in the wake of SARS -- moved quickly to respond to the potential threat, according to a recent report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). "Taiwan rapidly produced and implemented a list of at least 124 action items in the past five weeks to protect public health," report co-author Jason Wang, a Taiwanese doctor and associate professor of pediatrics at Stanford Medicine, said in a statement. "The policies and actions go beyond border control because they recognized that that wasn't enough." This was while other countries were still debating whether to take action. In a study conducted in January, Johns Hopkins University said Taiwan was one of the most at-risk areas outside of mainland China -- owing to its close proximity, ties and transport links. Among those early decisive measures was the decision to ban travel from many parts of China, stop cruise ships docking at the island's ports, and introduce strict punishments for anyone found breaching home quarantine orders. In addition, Taiwanese officials also moved to ramp up domestic face-mask production to ensure the local supply, rolled out islandwide testing for coronavirus -- including retesting people who had previously unexplained pneumonia -- and announced new punishments for spreading disinformation about the virus. "Given the continual spread of Covid-19 around the world, understanding the action items that were implemented quickly in Taiwan, and the effectiveness of these actions in preventing a large-scale epidemic, may be instructive for other countries," Wang and his co-authors wrote. "Taiwan's government learned from its 2003 SARS experience and established a public health response mechanism for enabling rapid actions for the next crisis. Well-trained and experienced teams of officials were quick to recognize the crisis and activated emergency management structures to address the emerging outbreak." In particular, Taiwan's rapid and transparent response -- with medical officials holding daily briefings on the matter -- has been held up as an example of how democracies can still rein in epidemics, even as some were claiming only an autocratic government like China's could effectively control such a rapidly spreading virus. Taiwan also avoided the type of strict lockdowns that characterized the response in China and many other countries. Pandemic politics Taiwan's relative success in stymying the coronavirus outbreak has largely been overshadowed by the worsening crisis in Europe and the US, and the sense that, if any lessons were there to be learned, the moment has passed. While that may be true, why Western countries did not follow Taiwan's lead in January and February when they still had a chance remains unclear. One contributing potential factor many observers have pointed to is that Taiwan, unlike most every other governments, is not a member of the World Health Organization (WHO). Taiwan is claimed by China as part of its territory, and Beijing blocks Taiwan from participating in many international organizations unless it does so in a way that conforms to the "one China" principle -- which obfuscates the island's separation from mainland China -- such as calling itself "Chinese Taipei" in the Olympics. Taiwan did have observer status at the WHO until 2016. That changed, however, with the election of President Tsai Ing-wen, of the traditionally pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party, which has been followed by Beijing massively ramping up pressure on Taipei, poaching its few remaining diplomatic allies and staging military shows of force. The WHO argues that Taiwan's exclusion from meetings of member states does not have an effect on the day-to-day sharing of health information and guidance, with experts and health workers still interacting with international colleagues through the organization. However, numerous observers, including Taiwanese officials, have claimed that it has had a negative effect both during the SARS epidemic and the current crisis. Natasha Kassam, an expert on China, Taiwan and diplomacy at Australia's Lowy Institute, said that early on in the coronavirus pandemic, a lack of direct and timely channels to the WHO "resulted in inaccurate reporting of cases in Taiwan," with WHO officials apparently relying on Beijing for numbers from the island. "Taiwanese authorities have complained about the lack of access to WHO data and assistance," she said. That lack of information may have forced Taiwan to go it alone and make decisions early on independently of the WHO guidance and broader international consensus. Assistance goes in both directions, however, and in recent weeks, Taiwanese officials have repeatedly complained that their exclusion from the WHO is preventing the island playing its full part in the global response. "We want to help -- to send out our great doctors, our great researchers, our great nurses -- and to share our knowledge and experience with countries that need it," Vice President Chen Chien-jen, a Johns Hopkins-trained epidemiologist, told the American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei last week. "We want to be a good global citizen and make our contribution, but right now we are unable to." Officials on the island have seized on an interview with WHO assistant director-general Bruce Aylward by Hong Kong public broadcaster RTHK last week, in which he appeared to dodge a question on Taiwan, blaming internet connection issues. In a statement, the WHO said that "the question of Taiwanese membership in WHO is up to WHO Member States, not WHO staff." Speaking to reporters Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying, said that all sides clearly understand "that WHO members have to be sovereign states." "There have been no issues with Taiwan's participation in relevant WHO events and its obtaining information on public health emergencies, including this pandemic," she claimed, contradicting the island's own government. "We hope (the US and Taiwan) stop their attempt in engaging in political manipulation under the pretext of the pandemic." A spokesman for the WHO told CNN that "some people are confusing WHO's technical global public health mandate, with the mandate of countries to determine WHO's membership." "Every year, WHO and Taiwanese authorities and experts interact on vital public health and scientific issues, according to well-established arrangements. During the current Covid-19 pandemic, there are regular interactions as well," they said in an email. "The Taiwanese caseload is low relative to population. We continue to follow developments closely. WHO is taking lessons learned from all areas, including Taiwanese health authorities." https://edition.cnn.com/2020/04/04/asia/taiwan-coronavirus-response-who-intl-hnk/index.html

帛琉大使推文讚台灣 關鍵在新光醫院助建實驗室

2020-04-07

時間:2020-04-04 10:33新聞引據:採訪撰稿編輯:蕭照平 帛琉駐聯合國常任大使鄔露彤日前在推文上表示,沒有人對帛琉的檢測伸出援手,只有台灣給予回應。對此,長期醫療援助帛琉的新光醫院今天(4日)表示,除了先前在台協助檢驗檢體外,目前也正協助帛琉建置P2等級以上的檢驗實驗室,讓帛琉也有自己的檢驗能力。 俗稱武漢肺炎的COVID-19疫情全球延燒,各國都緊急備戰,而帛琉駐聯合國常任大使鄔露彤(Ngedikes Olai Uludong)日前更在推文上表示,帛琉向全球求援僅有台灣回應,稱讚台灣是患難時的「真朋友」。 台灣新光吳火獅紀念醫院除了協助檢驗帛琉可疑的疑似病例檢體外,其實鄔露彤推文上連續3次提到的「檢測」(test)更是透露台灣當前對帛琉協助重點。 新光醫院副院長洪子仁表示,帛琉政府在3月初就向新光醫院提出需求,希望能協助帛琉建立專業級的檢驗實驗室,於是新光醫院開始幫忙找設備、組織人力,除了透過密集的視訊會議提供指導,相關設備更是陸續協調小型醫療專機空運以及委託漁船海運一一送抵帛琉,預計4月15日就能協助帛琉有自己P2等級以上的檢驗實驗室。他說:『(原音)華航現在沒有飛帛琉,東西怎麼運,你在想想看,建置實驗室會有個生物操作櫃,這櫃子400多公斤,你的醫療專機怎麼載過去,後來只好從東港派漁船載過去。』 不只硬體到位,新光醫院在獲得衛福部報准下,也派出檢驗師跟呼吸治療師前往帛琉,協助當地醫院建立檢驗流程與技巧。洪子仁說:『(原音)目前就是把行動醫療團的能量轉換成幫他們建構防疫系統,我想這是這個時間點,我們應該幫忙處理的事。』 在全球防疫拉警報下,許多設備有錢都不一定買得到,新光醫院不僅協助帛琉建置檢驗實驗室、調度呼吸器等防疫物資,可以說是對帛琉提供了最需要的協助。 其實新光醫院長期在帛琉提供醫療人道服務,雖然因為疫情延後了例行的行動醫療團,但持續在關鍵時刻貢獻心力,展現「Taiwan is helping」的「暖」實力。

Palau president thanks Taiwan for helping keep coronavirus at bay

2020-03-09

By Ching-Tse Cheng, Taiwan News, Staff Writer 2020/03/05 15:53 Tommy Remengesau Jr. (left) expresses gratitude to Taiwan. (Palau Presidential Office photo) TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Palau President Tommy Remengesau Jr. said Wednesday (March 4) that the Taiwanese government has contributed greatly to epidemic prevention in the West Pacific nation, which so far has not had any cases of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). In an official statement, Remengesau pointed out that an American health worker in Palau who was admitted to a local hospital earlier this week after displaying flu symptoms has tested negative for the coronavirus. He said that the medical staff took the situation very seriously and called them heroes that are helping to keep Palau free from the spread of the virus. The Palauan leader said that the country has collaborated closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as several health agencies in the U.S. He also expressed gratitude to the Taiwanese government and its Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for assistance and support in the battle against the epidemic, reported CNA. Remengesau said that Taiwan's CDC has helped Palau maintain the highest possible response level and that the Palau government will continue to promote personal hygiene among its citizens. He emphasized that fear, rather than the virus itself, is the people’s biggest enemy, as can be observed from many past situations similar to the current outbreak, reported ETtoday.
