MBC, in partnership with the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office, hosted a digital forum with Ambassador Pei Yung Hsu, Dr. Mei Shang Ho (Academia Sinica), and Dr. Ted Chang (Quanta Computer, top three contract manufacturer of computers, cellphones, etc.) to expound on Taiwan’s COVID-19 response and road to recovery.

As the number of COVID-19 cases hits 5.4 million globally, the race is on to find treatments and a vaccine. At the joint MBC-USABC event “Crisis Mode R&D”, the Philippine heads of three global pharmaceutical companies — Beaver Tamesis of MSD; Jean-Antoine Zinsou from Sanofi Pasteur; and Zainab Sadat of GSK — shed light on the challenges of vaccine research and development in crisis-mode.
