Woman Faces NT$600K Fine for Absconding from Quarantine Hotel 未入住防疫旅館 北市失聯女子遭開罰60萬

A woman returned Taiwan from Dubai that absconded from her quarantine hotel before even checking in faces a NT$600,000 fine.



Ms. Pan walks out of a private residence in Beitou. Police and health workers wearing protective gear from head to toe disinfect her and then take her to a quarantine facility. Pan flew into Taiwan on the 19th from Dubai, but did not check into a quarantine hotel. Police discovered she took a quarantine taxi to a quarantine hotel and then got onto a friend's scooter. The friend took her to Beitou. Police located her on the evening of the 20th. She faces a NT$600,000 fine.

Vicky Chen, Taipei City Spokesperson: “One of the numbers she provided was not in service and the other didn't seem to be her number either. We did everything we could to find her, but couldn't so we asked the police for help. She faces a fine of up to NT$600,000.”

Meanwhile, two new domestic cases were reported in Taipei on the 20th. One is a family member of a Shipai Junior High School student, and the other is a 75-year-old woman. The woman visited the same ENT clinic in Datong District as Case 18051, who is part of the Tasty steakhouse transmission chain.

Vicky Chen, Taipei City Spokesperson: “On Jan. 20, the Taipei City Department of Health was notified by Taoyuan. The dad (Case 18051) was recently in (Taipei). We began contact tracing on Jan. 20, including the clinic and other places he visited. A 75-year-old woman that was also at the clinic has tested positive. She lives with two grandchildren.”

All tests from the two grandchildren's schools have come back negative. Taipei is awaiting approval from the central government to implement vaccine passports. New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-ih, meanwhile, says his city is on high alert and will do whatever it takes to keep the epidemic from spreading no matter what is happening in other municipalities.

 

 

 

 

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。
