“I believe that everyone has been paying a lot of attention to the latest developments regarding coronavirus over the last two months, and that everyone deeply appreciates the courageous work of Taiwan’s medical teams. We hope that we can bring more protection to medical personnel through this donation,”said Michael Lee, Managing Director of Covestro Taiwan. “Following the Government’s epidemic disease policy precautions, Covestro Taiwan has launched a work from home strategy for its Taipei office.”
