TaiwanTaipei: In view of the inclement weather Taiwan issued a yellow alert on Monday for much of the central Philippines, including major tourist destinations like Boracay and Cebu, following the devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan on Nov. 8.


Haiyan brought down numerous houses, caused thousands of casualties and disrupted traffic and communications and water supply and electricity. The conditions mean there is an increased risk of contagious disease in the region, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.


The ministry urged Taiwanese nationals planning on going to the region to stay alert regarding hygiene and personal safety.


Under the ministry’s s four-colour travel alert system, red represents the highest level of warning to avoid the affected area. Orange means travellers should take precautions and avoid unnecessary travel, with yellow one step below, followed by gray, the lowest warning level.
