(Natural News) Amid the exploding coronavirus pandemic that has now surpassed 7,200 infections in China, with 170 deaths according to official numbers, citizens of Taiwan are working diligently to protect themselves from the infectious disease.

Face masks have sold out all across the island nation, even as the Taiwan government has declared that no masks manufactured in Taiwan may be exported, so that they can be directed to Taiwan citizens. Among Asian nations, Taiwan is arguably the most vigilant, taking very wise and rapid steps to protect its citizens from the pandemic that’s primarily spreading in mainland China. Taiwan learned some very important lessons from dealing with SARS over a decade ago, and the Taiwan government has applied those lessons for rapid response strategies that are helping protect its citizens today.

The concern over coronavirus, however, has create a spike in demand for masks across Taiwan, where many people who are intending to travel to China are trying to purchase masks in Taiwan, where they are far more affordable due to extreme scarcity of the masks in China.

Yesterday, hundreds of Taiwan citizens stood in line for 12.5 hours just to buy a single box of face masks. (See video below.)

“The Central Epidemic Outbreak Command Center announced yesterday that 6 million masks were released daily to major convenience stores for 3 consecutive days. One person can only purchase 3 masks,” reports Liberty Times Net in Taiwan:

Mr. Zhuang, who grabbed the head [of the line], said that he learned from the news last night that Changhua had the first family cluster infection in Taiwan… There are 4 production lines in operation, which can produce about 100,000 pieces.


The story further says that “People do not need to panic” since production lines are being opened to supply more than enough masks to meet demand in Taiwan.

Here’s a current map of the pandemic in Asia, mostly affecting mainland China:

Nowhere in the global media is anyone covering the concerning fact that simple face masks offer virtually no protection against coronavirus infections, since the masks don’t create a facial seal and don’t protect the eyes. It is already well documented that coronavirus can spread through the air and infect exposed eyes. It can also spread through casual contact. This is why Taiwan is also unveiling sophisticated electronic tracking of visitors who have returned from the Wuhan region in China (see details in an upcoming story on

As another consideration, if simple face masks actually protected users by collecting the coronavirus on the mask itself, most users around the world would infect themselves anyway, as they touch the mask to remove it. Almost no one in the general population — in any country — is trained on the proper method to remove contaminated masks without infecting yourself with the viral strain. Typically, only microbiology researchers or biological weapons military personnel have such training. Normal civilians will inevitably touch their own nose, mouth or eyes after touching a contaminated mask, thereby contaminating themselves.

Almost no one is wearing masks yet in the United States of America, underscoring how the USA is far behind Taiwan when it comes to public awareness about the potential severity of this outbreak. While Taiwan citizens are vigilant, most American citizens are oblivious.

Watch the video here:

N95 masks, storable food, colloidal silver and other emergency supplies are also selling out across America. Nearly all emergency storable food companies in America are already sold out, and even is now completely sold out of both N95 masks and full face respirators.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
