Infected Sailors Visited 21 Places Around Kaohsiung|軍艦確診高雄增至9人 市府公布21足跡熱點

The military originally said only eight of the 24 sailors with COVID-19 live in Kaohsiung, but hastily changed the number to nine. Meanwhile, the "places visited" list has also been changed from seven to 21. The government reminds everyone that has been to any of those places to self-monitor their health for 14 days and to stay home as much as possible.

The Kaohsiung City Government is stepping up prevention measures in the wake of the naval COVID-19 cluster infection, as many of the infected sailors live in Kaohsiung.

The health of our citizens is the most important thing right now. We are utilizing all the resources we have at our disposal for disinfection and other preventive measures. We are also doing everything we can to help the department store workers (affected).

Ruifeng Night Market has been thoroughly disinfected despite few visitors in recent weeks. With one of the infected people having visited the market in recent days, vendors are worried about their livelihoods. Nine of the 24 infected sailors live in Kaohsiung.

Another one of the cases also (lives in) Kaohsiung City. Nine of the infected group live in Kaohsiung. How many of the 744 sailors (that sailed on the voyage) live in Kaohsiung? Based on our understanding, the number is over 100. If the government can give us a list of names, we can follow up with them and anyone they came into contact with.

The Kaohsiung City Department of Health has compiled a list of 14 sites visited by the infected group, including a classroom and barber shop in Lingya District; and two hot pot restaurants, a motel and a department store in Yancheng District.

Fourteen places have been added to the list. We have asked these businesses to shut down from 2 p.m. this afternoon until noon tomorrow for disinfection and supervision.

The department says anyone that has been to any of the places on the list should monitor their health for 14 days and wear masks at all times.


高雄市長 韓國瑜表示:「現在就是市民朋友的健康,比什麼都重要。現在集中所有一切的力量,不管消毒這方面,還有百貨公司這些服務人員,他們自己本身的健康。」


高雄市衛生局長 林立人表示:「另外一例,再歸到高雄市,所以我們高雄市有九例。這744位(敦睦艦隊)裡面有多少人,我們據了解,有一百多位(居住)高雄,這一百多位名單,能夠給我們,我們進一步去做所謂的這些接觸。」


高雄市衛生局長 林立人表示:「第二波公布的這14家,我們是下午兩點開始到今天晚上12點,就請他們停止營業,我們要做相關的清消跟相關監測。」
