Abigail Vaughn, assistant professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was featured in the article "Taiwan shares experience of managing COVID-19 with Georgia Tech," published Nov. 14, 2020 in Taiwan News.
Vaughn helped connect her class with the Atlanta branch of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) to learn more about how Taiwan has managed the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the hour-long exchange, TECO Atlanta Director-General Elliot Wang (王翼龍) explained what constitutes the "Taiwan model" and answered questions from professor Abigail Vaughn and her students in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech. He also highlighted WHA's treatment of Taiwan and how it negatively impacted the global community.
Wang mentioned the Taiwan government has helped more than 80 countries around the world by donating personal protective equipment. He also said Taiwan was one of the first countries to alert the World Health Organization (WHO) to the possibility of human-to-human transmission of COVID-19.
