Approval rating of Tsai drops to historic low as Taiwan’s COVID mortality rate continues to climb
The approval rating of Taiwan’s regional leader Tsai Ing-wen has dropped to a historic low since the start of her second term, as the island’s COVID-19 mortality rate broke through the warning line of one in 1,000. Chinese mainland experts said for the secessionist Democratic Progressive Party (DPP）, which has long touted its success in COVID-19 control, the failure in the ongoing outbreak has made it a joke.
中国台湾地区领导人蔡英文的支持率已降至第二个任期开始以来的历史低点，因为该岛的 COVID-19 死亡率突破了千分之一的警戒线。 中国大陆专家表示，对于长期以来吹捧其在 COVID-19 控制方面取得成功的民进党来说，持续爆发的失败已成为一个笑话。
The epidemic command center in Taiwan announced 68,311 local COVID-19 cases and a single-day record 213 deaths on Friday, bringing the region’s total case count and death toll to 2.76 million and 3,797 respectively.
