Taoyuan Market Closed After Positive Case 大湳市場攤販確診感染源不明 休市3天

A vendor at Danan Market in Taoyuan's Bade District tested positive on Jan. 19, and the infection source is unknown. The city government announced the market will be closed for three days for disinfection.


Disinfection operations were carried out at Danan Market in Taoyuan's Bade District and surrounding communities on Jan. 20. Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan was on site to oversee the work.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Mayor, Taoyuan City: “We needed to conduct large-scale disinfection. The target areas are Danan Market and the Danan commercial district.”

A market vendor tested positive and became Case No. 18119. The infection source has not been determined. Cheng said that although the case had few footprints, the market was frequented by many people and an investigation is underway. The market will be closed for three days for disinfection.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Mayor, Taoyuan City: “Testing sites were set up at Bade Multifunction Building and locations near Danan Market. Yesterday, they tested 600 people, and no new cases were found. We are currently expanding the testing.”

On the morning of Jan. 20, there were still people who came to shop, as they were unaware that the market was closed. Cheng said the central government doesn't require people to scan QR codes to leave their contact information at all markets, and many markets have multiple entrances. He advises vendors to set up their own QR codes.

Shopper: “Of course it's frightening. I came to the market and I heard other people saying it was closed.”

Resident: “Of course you'll be afraid. (Afraid?) I usually just stay at home and don't go out. (You can go get tested today.) Yes.”

Wang Hsi-wen, Chief, Datong Borough, Bade District, Taoyuan City: “The market will be closed for three days until Friday. If no more problems are found after the testing is completed, then it can reopen on Saturday.”

Cheng said 3,215 Taoyuan residents are currently in quarantine. Many of the cases were found after taking a second test during quarantine or taking the last test before ending quarantine, so quarantining is a very important public health strategy.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Mayor, Taoyuan City: “At present, there are 1,160 people in home quarantine and 2,045 in 24 government quarantine facilities. That number will increase slightly as contact tracing continues.”

Cheng said the city tested 48,439 people between Jan. 4 and 19. He urged people to continue monitoring their health and to get tested if they develop symptoms or their footprints overlapped with infected cases.

 

 

 

 

一早桃園八德區大湳巿場及周遭社區進行消毒。市長鄭文燦也來視察。

鄭文燦指出:「大範圍的要消毒,環境區就大湳市場加大湳商圈。」

巿場外攤有攤商員工案18119確診,目前感染源不明。市長鄭文燦表示,雖然個案家庭生活足跡單純,但考慮到市場人流較為複雜,疫調還在進行,決定市場休市3天,全面清消。

鄭文燦表示:「在八德綜合大樓,離大湳市場最近的地方設置社區採檢站,昨天也採檢了六百多位,沒有新增個案,不過我們還在陸續擴大採檢中。」

早上還是有少數民眾不知道市場休市消息,拉著菜籃買菜撲空。鄭文燦表示,目前中央沒有宣布所有市場都要實聯制,有許多市場是開放的、不是只有單一入口,建議各攤商可以自己設置實聯制條碼。

買菜民眾說:「當然會怕,到市場人家講,今天市場沒有賣菜。」

附近民眾則說:「會怕(會怕),我都經常待在家裡,不要出來。」記者問:「今天可以篩檢趕快去?」民眾:「對。」

桃園八德區大同里長王錫文:「市場休業3天到星期五,如果說篩檢過後都沒有問題的話,原則上星期六就可以開始恢復營業。」 這波本土疫情爆發後,鄭文燦表示,桃園目前居隔人數是3215人,有很多確診個案是居隔間2採,或者解隔時採檢確診,居隔是非常重要的公衛手段。

鄭文燦表示:「目前居隔人數有1160人,在24個檢疫所有2045人,而且隨著疫調匡列,還略會有增加。」

市長鄭文燦表示,從4日到19日,桃園一共已經採檢了4萬8439位,也說到大湳市場和大湳商圈是八德人生活重心,提醒民眾提高健康監測,有症狀或足跡重疊都可以就近採檢,確保社區防疫安全。
