Celebrity Accused of Violating Disease Prevention Rules 網紅祈錦鈅水庫玩水 網友爆料違規群聚

The public is urged to continue to comply with disease prevention regulations even though the alert level has been downgraded. Netizens recently accused Internet celebrity Maxine Chi of violating disease prevention regulations by gathering with people and going on a recreational outing to Wushe Reservoir in Nantou County.
 


People sing aboard a raft, and then have a meal and drink together. A closer look reveals that no one is wearing a mask or social distancing. One of the people is Internet celebrity Maxine Chi. Footage also showed people playing in the water in a restricted area of Wushe Reservoir. It is thought that there was a staffer from Nantou Forest District Office accompanying the group. This colleague was not on duty, and it was his personal choice. Since the epidemic alert was issued, the Forest District Office has asked colleagues on numerous occasions to comply with disease prevention regulations. Related footage was posted online to a social media platform on Aug. 2. It was controversial because it showed violations of disease prevention regulations. At the reservoir,  signs are stating that this is a dangerous area. Meanwhile, Chi said she was there because she was scouting the location and making sure the water was clear. She also said she provided a negative test result before leaving.

Voice of Maxine Chi, Internet Celebrity:"That water was really cold, but I still had to go in. I had to know what the water quality was like, and whether we could shoot there. In other words, I had to personally go in to take a look."

Chi has worked as a spokesperson for the New Taipei City Police Department and said she was sorry for creating controversy. The reservoir is managed by Taiwan Power Company's Wanda Power Plant. The plant said it will clarify the facts to see if there was any illegal behavior. Related information will be sent to Nantou County's Public Health Bureau.

Chang Tien-jui, Director, Wanda Power Plant, Taiwan Power Company: “They said they were fishermen on their application, and requested permission to fish for aquatic products. That means that in principle, they shouldn't have engaged in recreational activities.”

The plant said any for-profit behavior will result in a fine of NT$30,000 to NT$100,000. Meanwhile, the Communicable Disease Control Act allows for fines of up to NT$15,000 for violations of disease prevention regulations.

 

 

 

眾人在漁筏唱歌,還聚在一起吃東西喝酒,但仔細看看,大家都沒戴口罩,也沒保持社交距離,其中一人是網紅祈錦鈅;畫面還拍到有人在霧社水庫管制水域戲水,疑似還有一名南投林管處的人員陪同。

南投林管處埔里站主任余啟瑞表示:「這是下班後,同仁他個人行為。自從疫情警戒以來,我們林管處多次要求同仁,遵守防疫規定。」


有民眾2號將畫面PO上社群網站,質疑違反防疫規定引起爭議。實際回到現場,有明顯公告為危險水域。對此網紅祈錦鈅表示,當時是去勘景,確認水質能見度,出發前也有提供快篩陰性證明。

網紅 祈錦鈅表示:「那個水很冷,可是我還是要下去的,我想知道水裡面的狀況,是能不能拍?等於我要自己下去看一下。」

祈錦鈅多次擔任新北市警方的代言人,對於引起爭議表示歉意。而負責管理的萬大電廠表示,將釐清是否有營利行為,也將相關資訊函送給南投縣衛生局。

台電萬大電廠長 張天瑞表示:「他們原來的申請,是他們是漁民。他們用漁民的方式,申請捕撈水產物的部分。所以原則上,她不應該有遊憩的行為。」

萬大電廠表示,如果有營利行為,將依法裁處3-10萬罰鍰,而違反防疫規定的部分,則是可依違反傳染病防治法,最重處15000元罰鍰。
