Presenter: New Taipei kindergarten Delta COVID cluster spreads to Taoyuan as a couple got reported with COVID after having been in contact with one of the infected kindergarten parents. A total of 31 people surrounding this cluster is currently under quarantine and going through PCR tests. 

The Central Epidemic Command Center announced two more new cases that are linked to the COVID cluster infection associated with a kindergarten in New Taipei City's Banqiao District. Case 16197 is a colleague to one of the kindergarten parents and case 16199 is his wife. Twenty-five more people are put under home quarantine because of the two new cases and they are undergoing PCR tests.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan City Mayor:”The couple lives a simple life; we are very clear with their schedules and where they have been to. Thirty-one people are currently under quarantine and undergoing tests. We are dealing with the situation with precision and speed and applying very strict standards.”

Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan said there needs to be cooperation across municipalities for managing COVID-19, especially with the sharing of the most updated COVID information to help minimize disjointed responses. Cheng further said that Taoyuan would work on enhancing health management at local kindergartens.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan City Mayor:”Each class and its homeroom teacher will be clearly separated from the other for all kindergartens in Taoyuan. They are not allowed to mix classes and they are not allowed to conduct all-school events. If anyone is found to have a fever, he or she will be asked to stop coming to school.”

Cheng warns the public again of the high transmissibility of the Delta variant. Each step of response to any Delta case should be exercised with precision to prevent the spread. The Delta variant can stay dormant for a longer period of time and several tests need to be conducted for verification. Cheng said he will be applying the strictest standards to prevent the spread of the disease within the community.
