Level 3 Alert Downgraded to Level 2 今起疫情警戒降至二級 部分行業陸續鬆綁

With the nationwide Level 3 alert being downgraded on July 27, the Central Epidemic Command Center said people should not let down their guards and announced a platform to assist with inter-city and county outbreak investigations.


The epidemic situation appears to be stabilizing, so the alert level was downgraded from Level 3 to Level 2 on July 27. The Central Epidemic Command Center said Taipei and New Taipei City are still seeing community transmission, with cases in the two cities accounting for 74 percent of all cases. The situation in all other cities and counties has improved, so they are considered medium- to low-risk. The CECC asked local governments to effectively carry out outbreak investigations. The CECC also announced the launch of a platform to assist with outbreak investigations. Outbreak investigators will be given access to cross-city and county information on the footprints of confirmed cases, allowing them to immediately identify potential contacts.

Chen Tsung-yen, Dep. Commander, Central Epidemic Command Center:"The platform to assist outbreak investigations can help to speed up outbreak investigations. It's very convenient for outbreak investigators to use it. However, they must make sure to protect personal information."

CECC Deputy Commander Chen Tsung-yen said the system is only for the use of outbreak investigators. He added that local governments must delete any downloaded information within 28 days. Parties can also check which people looked up their personal information. With regards to vaccines, some inoculation projects aren't  allowed yet. However, some cities and counties have started them ahead of time, which the CECC said could lead to vaccine distribution imbalances.

Chen Tsung-yen, Dep. Commander, Central Epidemic Command Center:"Health offices must understand the operations of departments and bureaus under city and county governments. Everyone can now make reservations to get vaccines through our reservation system. This is the only way that we can follow our vaccination sequence."

Chen said although the alert level has been downgraded to Level 2 and restrictions have been eased for some industries, the government has asked them to propose relevant guidelines on how to respond to confirmed cases. The public is reminded to continue to maintain good hygienic practices, including frequently washing hands, wearing masks, and maintaining social distancing.

 

 

 

國內新冠疫情趨緩,週二27號起、三級警戒調降為二級,疫情指揮中心表示,社區感染仍以雙北地區最多,占所有感染案件數的七成四,除了雙北,其他縣市疫情、均調降為中低等級,要求地方政府應落實疫調,並宣布即日起,開放「疫調輔助平台」,讓疫調人員可以跨縣市查詢確診者足跡,有利於疫調即時匡列。

中央流行疫情指揮中心副指揮官 陳宗彥表示:「疫調輔助平台是有助於加速疫調,對於疫調人員的使用極為方便。但是同時要去注意,對於個人隱私的保護。」

陳宗彥表示,這套系統僅限於疫調使用,也請地方政府下載資料後28天,務必刪除,且當事人也可查詢、哪些人查過自己個資;此外,新冠疫苗開打至今發現,有些專案施打還沒開放,但部分縣市超前部署先開打,容易造成中央疫苗分配失衡。

中央流行疫情指揮中心副指揮官 陳宗彥表示:「縣市政府之間,這些局處的執行跟作業,務必要讓衛生局來了解。那我們開放給這個全民在預約系統上預約,這樣子,才可以依照順序來做接種。」

陳宗彥強調,疫情警戒雖然調降為二級,部分行業陸續鬆綁,目前相關指引都有要求業者提出,萬一出現確診者的處理機制,因此提醒民眾仍要落實勤洗手、戴口罩、外出保持社交距離等個人防護。
