Taipei City Reports New COVID-19 Cases 石牌國中學生家長.東吳城區部 再傳確診

Taipei City reported 2 new confirmed cases on the evening of the 20th. One of which was a parent of a student from Shipai Junior High School, and the other was a confirmed case at Soochow University's downtown campus who was in the same classroom as confirmed Case 18116. 


Teachers, students, and school staff were successively tested under the guidance of the epidemic prevention personnel. Crowds of people are queuing in the entire building. Taipei City added two new confirmed COVID-19 cases on the evening of the 20th. One of the confirmed cases was at Soochow University's downtown campus.

Lee Kuen-chang, Dean of Student Affairs, Soochow University: “The confirmed case was in a classroom that can hold 120 people. There were a total of 61 students in class that day. Yesterday, we tested a total of 662 people, all negative.”

The school pointed out that this new case and recent Case 18116 from Taoyuan was in the same classroom. People in the same classroom that day have been quarantined. The school has successively carried out tests for teachers and students with overlapping footprints. The results of the tests are all negative. Currently, the school is conducting voluntary tests and informing students that if they can't return to school, they should get tested at the nearest medical facility.

Hsu Mei-lin, Deputy Director, National Theater and Concert Hall: “The confirmed case came to the Concert Hall's Chun Shui Tang restaurant to dine around evening time on the 17th. January 17 to 26 is the annual maintenance period of the National Concert Hall, so there were no performances at the time. But to ensure public safety, we are disinfecting the whole building for a day.”

National Concert Hall was closed for one day on the 21st, while Chun Shui Tang restaurant will be closed until the 23rd. Taipei City's second new confirmed case on the evening of the 20th was a parent from Shipai Junior High School. The parent came in contact with Case 18051 at a clinic in Datong District. The school immediately arranged for teachers and students to take PCR tests.

Yu Chih-cheng, Director of Student Affairs, Shipai Junior High: “Teachers and students who came in closest contact with the child of the confirmed patient were in the first wave of screening. A total of 48 students were screened. Reports that came back on the 20th evening were all negative. Today, we will do preventive screening of other classes that were close to him, which is about 300 students.”

The school did not carry out preventive suspension of classes since it is closed on the 20th and winter vacation starts on the 21st.

 

 

 

在防疫人員的引導下,學校師生和工作人員,陸續進行採檢,而且放眼望去,一整棟樓都能看見排隊人潮。台北市在20日晚間新增2例新冠肺炎的確診個案,東吳大學的城中校區又出現確診者足跡。

東吳大學學務長李坤璋表示:「就是在同一個教室裡面,所以基本上那個教室,以可以容納120個人而言,當天上課的總共有61位學生,昨天的一個採檢人數,總共是662位,全部都是陰性。」

校方指出,這例新增個案和日前的桃園確診者案18116,曾經在同一個教室上課。當天同教室的人已經先採檢隔離,校方陸續針對有足跡重疊的師生進行採檢,採檢結果都是陰性,目前校內在進行自主性採檢,並通知學生如果無法返校採檢,還可以在就近的醫療院所進行。

國家兩廳院副總監許美玲說明:「(個案)在17日有來到,音樂廳的春水堂,大約傍晚的時候用餐。那因為兩廳院在1月17日到1月26日是國家音樂廳的年度保養期,也沒有節目演出,因此我們目前為了要保障觀眾的安全,我們當然是全棟清消一日。」

由於這例個案,曾經前往國家音樂廳和春水堂,因此兩廳院也緊急公告,21日音樂廳休館一天、春水堂則停業到23日。

防疫人員持續在校內清消,因為台北市20日晚間新增的第2例確診個案,是石牌國中的學生家長,他和確診個案18051,有大同區耳鼻喉科的足跡重疊,校方接獲通報,立刻安排師生PCR採檢。

北市石牌國中學務主任余智誠表示:「跟他(確診者小孩)最近距離接觸的老師跟同學,進行第一波的篩檢,篩檢了48位同學,晚上(20日)都告訴我們是陰性,那今天會針對其他跟他靠近的班級,一起做預防性的篩檢,那今天大概是300多位的同學。」

由於學校20日就是休業式,21日開始放寒假,因此校方除了採檢、清消之外,並沒有預防性停課問題。
