106 lawmakers from seven Eastern European countries have voiced support in recent weeks for Taiwan’s participation at the World Health Assembly (WHA) set to reconvene next Monday, according to the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday.

In separate letters sent to World Health Organisation (WHO) President Tedros Adhanom, the lawmakers collectively expressed a “high-level of support” for Taiwan’s participation at the WHO’s 73rd annual assembly, citing Taipei’s “exemplary” record of controlling the spread of Covid-19.

Taiwan has been hailed internationally for its successful handling of the pandemic — it reached a record of 200 days without a locally-transmitted case last Friday and has reported a total of 563 cases and seven deaths since the start of the outbreak.
