作者為前衛生署署長

孔夫子說,有朋自遠方來,不亦悅乎,因此歡迎您來台灣訪問,我先自我介紹,我曾任台灣衛生署長(等同您的衛生部長)2009至2011年,在此並非要與你分享我的經驗,我要說的是美國有全世界最好的醫學院及公共衛生學院,例如密西根大學公共衛生學院,我從那裏得到公共衛生學博士(1989年),美國也擁有世界一流的傳染病管控機構,疾病管制署(CDC),相關一流專家更不可數,但美國的新冠疫情卻是全球最糟糕,有最多的病人及死亡。你們的川普總統直到最近還說戴口罩無用,選舉造勢也不要求支持者戴口罩(實際上成千上萬支持者幾乎沒人戴口罩)。

最近川普又要學校開門,督促學生上學,這將造成更多年幼者成為無症狀感染者,將病毒帶回家庭及社區,造成更多的病人及老亡。在2009-11年H1N1大流行時,台灣只要每班二人確診,則關班;有二班關班,則關閉學校,大幅降低流感流行,而台灣卻因此是當年控制流感成效最好的國家之一。

全球很多人都知道川普是個瘋子,所以如果我是你,就在台灣宣布辭職,給川普巨大壓力,讓他能做對的及說對的話,如此不但能救很多美國人的性命及經濟,全球也將由此獲益,包括台灣。

祝平安

An open letter to Mr Alex M. Azar, Secretary of HHS of United States of America

As Confucius said, it is such a pleasure to have friends coming from afar. Welcome to visit Taiwan. May I introduce myself. I served as Minister of Health here in Taiwan from 2009-11. I have no intention to share what I did as Minister of Health with you now. What I like to say is your country have many best schools of medicine and schools of public health such as University of Michigan where I get my PHD.

You also have one of the best institution on communicable disease control - CDC and many more top experts on epidemic control. Then, how terrible your country deal with this conovir-19 pandimic . You have the most patients and deaths in the world. Only one week ago your President Trump still keeps saying mask is useless and during the predential campaign not to ask supporters to wear masks. More recently, he urges schools to open and asks students back to schools. All we know this will end up more kids get infected without symptom and bring virus back to familys and sociaty. During 2009 - 2011 H1N1 out break, we closed the class with two cases and close the entire school if more than two classes closed. We effectively subdued the epidemic. Taiwan is regarded is one of the best to control H1N1 pandemic.

Many people around the world know Mr. Trump is nuts. So, if I were you, l will resign as Secretary as HHS here in Taiwan to put pressure on Mr . Trump to do and say things correctly. To do this not only save American lives and economy. the whole world will also benefit from this doing.

sincerely yours

C.L.Yaung, PHD. Honorable Chair Professor
