Taiwanese have not been keen swimmers or divers. A current study in the number of swimming pools in Japan and Taiwan shows a ratio difference of 188 to 9.6 in Taiwan, per 100,000 people.
The ratio of drownings for kids under age 14 per 100,000 is 0.6 and 1.8 between Japan and Taiwan.
It’s a pity that Taiwanese have been missing out on enjoying the beauties and adventure of the real underwater world, (not just in fish tanks) which is hopefully, soon to change.
