New Taipei City Braces for Peak Epidemic Period 侯友宜:口罩戴好 如同多增加1劑疫苗

New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-ih said wearing a mask is just like getting another shot. Meanwhile, around 80,000 people made appointments in one hour for the booster dose in Taipei.


Store Employee: “After a customer passes by, we'll spray one more time. ”

Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei City Mayor: “Spray one more time with alcohol. Great, how about trying it out now, go on and spray.”

New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-ih carefully inspected the disease prevention measures at a hypermarket on Jan. 10 and made sure everything was up to standards. Hou said in light of the escalating Taoyuan International Airport cluster infection that the two weeks before the Lunar New Year will be the peak epidemic period. He didn't directly respond when asked if New Taipei City is planning to upgrade its disease prevention measures.

Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei City Mayor: “Wearing a mask is like getting another shot. If you got your third shot, then wearing a mask is like getting a fourth one. That's why you can't overlook the importance of masking up.”

New Taipei City has strengthened its disease prevention measures. Hypermarkets are no longer offering food samples, and there is a limit of one person per 2.25 square meters of space. Hou said the central government should offer rapid PCR tests to all incoming travelers and compile a list of high-risk countries. Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je also endorsed PCR tests upon entry.

Ko Wen-je, Taipei City Mayor: “About 68 percent test positive in the first test after entry. What this means is that if this 68 percent are stopped at the airport, they won't go to quarantine hotels where the ventilation systems aren't 100 percent and can become breaches.”

Taipei opened up for booster appointments on Jan. 10. Around 80,000 people made appointments in one hour, and the 110,000 available doses were booked by noon. Ko said medium-sized vaccination stations will be set up and those who didn't get appointments can start making them on Jan. 14.

 

 

 

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。
