2 Positive After First Batch of 7+7+7 Quarantine Finished 首批「7+7+7」檢疫期滿 2例採檢陽性

Two confirmed cases of COVID-19 are reported in Taipei City amid those entering Taiwan opting for the "7+7+7" quarantine plan. While they have been admitted to hospitals for isolation and treatment, doctors worry that the shortened quarantine period for the Lunar New Year will create a loophole in the community.
 


The first batch of passengers for the "7+7+7" program was being screened at the quarantine hotel one after another. If they were negative, they could return home to complete the follow-up quarantine time. However, it was reported that two people in Taipei City tested positive and have been admitted to the hospital for isolation and treatment. Some doctors worry that a similar situation may happen again. Previously, in the New Taipei kindergarten cluster incident, the "Egyptian Dad," who was in the late stage of infection, tested back and forth between positive and negative. Only public health measures can be used to prevent the virus from entering the community. 

Chiang Kuan-yu, General Physician, Taipei City Hospital, Zhongxing Branch: “There will be these types of cases. So public health measures can only lessen your risk and protect you up to 95 percent. But at 95 percent, you will have a 5 percent miss. At 99 percent protection, you will have a 1 percent miss.”

The European Union announced on the 21st that it recognized the digital COVID-19 certificates issued by Taiwan. The public is curious about whether the vaccine brand includes the domestically produced Medigen vaccine. Chen Shih-chung, the commander of the Central Epidemic Command Center, responded that what the EU recognizes is the vaccination certificate's validity. It's not only the EU, but Taiwan is also continuing to negotiate with many other countries.

Chen Shih-chung, Commander, Central Epidemic Command Center: “The vaccine certificate is to confirm the validity of this certificate. As for the certification and recognition of various vaccines, the standards adopted by each country are different.”

Chen emphasized that details of the domestic digital vaccine certificate and other related matters will be announced as soon as next week; as for the first phase of the "7+7+7" program, the CECC will uniformly announce how many people in Taiwan have been tested positive. 

 

 

 

春節返台檢疫「7+7+7」方案上路後,首批旅客陸續在防疫旅館進行採檢。若為陰性,就可返家完成後續檢疫時間,不過傳出台北市有2人檢驗為陽性,已收治醫院隔離治療。有醫師擔憂,類似狀況可能還會再發生,因為之前新北幼兒園群聚事件,指標個案「埃及爸爸」就是處於感染後期,陰陰陽陽狀況,要防堵病毒進入社區,只能靠公共衛生手段。

北市聯醫中興院區一般內科醫師姜冠宇提到:「這案例一定會有,所以說這是公共衛生,只能把你的風險做到保護你保護到95%,保護你99%,可是你95%,就會有5%(遺漏),你99%就會有1%(遺漏)。」

此外,歐盟21日宣布承認台灣核發的新冠疫苗接種證明書,外界好奇疫苗廠牌是否包含國產高端?疫情指揮中心指揮官陳時中回應表示,歐盟承認的是疫苗接種證明的有效性,而且不只歐盟,還有很多國家也持續洽談中。

中央流行疫情指揮中心指揮官陳時中說:「疫苗證明是認這個證書的效力,就是承認這樣的證明它的有效性,那至於裡面相關的疫苗的認證,那各國採用的標準各有不同。」陳時中強調,最快下週就會公布國內疫苗數位證明等相關事宜。

至於「7+7+7」方案第一階段採檢,全台有多少人被驗出陽性確診,將在下午指揮中心記者會統一公布。
