Travelers Required to Stay at Airport Until PRC Tests Come Back 明起長程航班旅客須篩檢 陰性才能入境

The CECC has announced that starting on the 11th, all passengers disembarking from long-haul flights will have to undergo a PCR test and remain at the airport until their results come back.


On the 10th, Central Epidemic Command Center chief Chen Shih-chung inspected the new immigration flow route at Taoyuan International Airport from jet bridge to testing lounge. Staggered seating is required in the testing lounge and travelers will be asked to wait their turn until they are called. Starting on the 11th, all passengers disembarking from long-haul flights will have to undergo a PCR test and remain at the airport until their results come back. Those that test positive will be removed from the airport via a designated route and taken to a hospital by ambulance. Chen says this will protect the airport, cleaning staff, quarantine taxi drivers and quarantine hotels.

Chen Shih-chung, Central Epidemic Command Center Chief: “The first line is testing people before they enter Taiwan. This means we will be able to block some patients -- of course not all, but some -- before they enter (Taiwan) and before they have contact with citizens. They will be taken directly (to the hospital) by ambulance.”

Due to the airport outbreak, 8,924 people have undergone PCR testing in the last two days with three new cases found. Two of the three, both cleaners, were included in the new cases announced on the 9th. Contact tracing is being performed for the third.

Victor Wang, Taoyuan Airport CECC On-site Commander: “Two were reported yesterday. There was another case yesterday that is still being traced. So, right now there are three cases in 8,924.”

Wang Kwo-tsai, Transportation and Communications Minister: “(Has another Taiwanese pilot tested positive?) It kind of maybe looks that way right now. There has probably been this kind of (positive) result recently.”

Transportation and Communications Minister Wang Kwo-tsai admits there have been "this kind of" cases of Taiwanese pilots testing positive in recent days, including one EVA Air pilot who flies Taiwan-U.S. routes who reportedly tested positive while in home quarantine.

 

 

 

仔細查看清消步驟,不放過任何細節,年節將到,侯友宜前往大賣場視察防疫措施,面對桃園機場群聚感染確診人數不斷增加,侯友宜評估,過年前兩周將是疫情高峰期,新北防疫是否升級,沒有正面回應。

侯友宜表示: 「口罩戴上再多增加1劑,你打了3劑,戴了口罩,又增加第4劑,所以戴口罩絕對不可以輕忽。」

新北加嚴防疫措施,各大賣場暫停試吃,並要求人流容留管制每2.25平方公尺內以1人為上限,侯友宜也呼籲中央入境快速PCR,並列出高風險國家,台北市長柯文哲也贊成入境PCR。

柯文哲指出:「有68%的境外移入是在入境第一次採檢就陽性,如果這68%在機場就攔下來,就不會到防疫旅館,我們現在防疫旅館通風設備也不是100%的,這樣很容易去造成太多的破口。」

台北市開放第3劑疫苗施打,10日才開放一小時,就湧入8萬人預約,11萬劑疫苗預計中午就會預約完畢,柯文哲呼籲,沒預約到的不要緊張,將加開中型注射站,14日開放預約。
