Taiwan’s iconic skyscraper Taipei 101 sets off fireworks

Published on December 31, 2020 by

Taiwan hosted its usual New Year’s celebration with a fireworks display by its capital city’s iconic tower, Taipei 101, to ring in 2021.

But due to the coronavirus pandemic, it had capped attendance at the main viewing spot next to the city government at 40,000, half of the 80,000 it had originally planned, with attendees having to register their personal details and wear masks.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je defended the move not to cancel the activities, saying that Taiwan had no community transmission and all correct precautions were being taken.
