Resumen

El manejo de la infección por SARS-CoV-2 en Taiwán ha sido catalogado como uno de los más eficientes del mundo. Tiene una población que es casi equivalente a la del Perú, pero el número de infectados fue menor de seiscientos y la mortalidad ha sido sumamente baja: solo siete pacientes han fallecido hasta el mes de diciembre. A pesar de su cercanía geográfica a la ciudad de Wuhan, esta región afrontó la pandemia con éxito, ya que contaba con la experiencia previa de la epidemia del SARS en el 2003, y también porque la población tiene una mayor conciencia ciudadana que las de otros países. Las acciones que han convertido a Taiwán en un ejemplo de cómo puede desarrollarse una política de salud pública eficiente para controlar la diseminación del SARS-CoV-2 son las siguientes: la utilización de recursos electrónicos e informáticos, el empleo correcto de la información, el desarrollo de pruebas de laboratorio propias y, por último, el manejo cuidadoso y efectivo de los casos sospechosos, los contactos y los pacientes hospitalizados. Esta experiencia es un ejemplo importante para nuestro país.
