Surgical masks in sale through automated machines in Taiwan [Morning Call]

Outside Taipei City’s Xinyi District Health Center people take patiently to the queue. But they are not waiting to see a doctor, nurse or pharmacist. They’re here to use a vending machine.

The surgical masks are purchased through the Name-Based Mask Distribution System amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
