Taiwan reported no new cases of the coronavirus for the first time, in the latest sign that the island’s early and effective prevention methods have paid off.

Taiwan has won plaudits from health experts for how it has fought the virus, including starting as early as Dec. 31 checks on passengers arriving from China’s Wuhan city, where the first cases were reported late last year.
Taiwan has reported 393 cases to date and six deaths. A total of 338 were so-called imported cases, where people were suspected of getting infected overseas before entering Taiwan, with the rest cases of local transmissions.
