The company’s main goal is to provide the best possible solution to the problem. The Yonhap News Agency quoted the South China Morning Post as saying that if the epidemic is not stopped from spreading southward, Taiwan’s economy may face the worst situation.

Tony Phoo, a senior economist at Standard Chartered Bank, pointed out in the report that if the number of confirmed cases continues to increase and the epidemic spreads southward, manufacturing plants in the semiconductor industry and other industries will be affected by the closure and impact on production capacity, which may cause the global semiconductor supply shortage problem to worsen.

DBS Bank senior economist Ma Tieh-Ying pointed out in an interview that Taiwan shares fell more than 8% this week due to the impact of the increased number of confirmed cases. With the strengthening of measures to prevent the disease, Taiwan’s consumption may be further affected.

Reuters, The Guardian and other foreign media are relatively optimistic that the current escalation of the epidemic does not include the semiconductor town of Hsinchu, which will not affect semiconductor exports.

Taiwan’s previous epidemic was stable compared to other countries, with only 1,475 cases diagnosed so far, and Korean media reports have described Taiwan as a “model country for epidemic prevention”.
