Bank Infection Cluster Increases to 14 Cases 聯邦健行分行群聚擴大 累計14例確診

The cluster infection at Zhongli's Union Bank Chienshin Branch continues to expand, as the number of confirmed cases has now risen to 14. Over 3,000 people who visited the bank have been listed and will get tested. 


Union Bank's Chienshin Branch in Zhongli District was still closed during normal operating hours due to the confirmed diagnosis of many of its staff. After closing for a day for disinfection, it was still closed on the 13th. Some people came to the bank but left empty handed.

Citizen: “It's 9 o'clock and the door hasn't opened yet. (Have you heard that some staff here have been diagnosed with the virus?) I don't know (would be very worried). I have seen it and yes, I'm very scared.”


Bank Staff: “We will not be officially open today.”

Bank employees arrived at the bank one after another. Only some of the lights were turned on. There were constantly cleaning vehicles spraying disinfection around the bank. It was because a residential caregiver confirmed with COVID-19 had visited here. Twelve employees have also become confirmed cases since testing started on the 12th. Now, there is another positive case.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan Mayor: “A bank employee's test came back positive after the Central Epidemic Command Center issued their press release. Another family member who was being traced was also diagnosed with the virus.”

There are already 14 confirmed cases related to the Union Bank branch. The branch previously held a year-end banquet at a restaurant in Zhongli on January 7th. The restaurant is currently closed and the city government launched a contact tracing overnight.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan Mayor: “We investigated the restaurant's staff overnight yesterday. We reviewed data on 26 people. 82 other guests ate at the restaurant on the same day. That's a total of 108 people we are investigating for the first round of tracing.”

As the number of confirmed cases in Zhongli continued to increase, there was a crowd of people queuing up at the testing station in Longgang playground early in the morning, filling up the entire square. The epidemic in Taoyuan continued to spread and people are feeling increasingly insecure. The central government has to fully prepare for the war to prevent the epidemic from spreading again. 

 

 

 

來到上班時間,中壢聯邦銀行健行分依舊大門緊閉,由於陸續有行員確診,銀行經過一天休息,緊急大清消後,13日同樣還是沒有營業,有民眾前來辦事撲空。

民眾說:「已經9點了,還沒有開門(有沒有聽說這裡有行員確診)不知道啊 (會很擔心)我有看到 會啊,會很害怕。」

銀行員工表示:「今天目前不會正式營業。」

幾名銀行人員,陸續抵達現場,裡頭只有些微燈光打開,銀行周遭,不斷有清潔車,噴灑消毒,就是因為染疫居服員,曾經到過中壢這間銀行洽公,從12日採檢出有12名員工確診後,現在,又有新增個案。

桃園市長鄭文燦表示:「有一位行員是在指揮中心新聞稿宣布之後也確定確診,另外有一位匡列的家人也確診。」

桃園疫情持續延燒,光是與銀行相關確診個案,累積有14人染疫,而分行先前曾經1月7日在中壢某間餐廳年終聚餐,目前餐廳先停業,市府也連夜展開疫調。

鄭文燦指出:「餐廳的員工昨天連夜調查,調閱資料有26位,當日聚餐的其他的客人,其他的包廂有82位,那一共是108位(做第一輪的匡列)。」

隨著中壢確診人數不斷增加,一早龍岡大操場的採檢站,就湧現排隊人潮,圍繞整個廣場。

公視記者陳冠勳認為:「桃園疫情越來越嚴重,也引起民眾擔心,可以看到在中壢的採檢站這邊,一大早9點多,有超過上百人等待採檢。」

只見桃園疫情,一波未平一波又起,民眾心中不安全感,也跟著增加,如何防止疫情再擴散,中央地方不得不全面備戰。
