Career, a large flexible printed circuit board manufacturer, immediately shut down their Shulin plant after a female migrant worker was confirmed with COVID-19 on the 9th. The company has expanded screening of its employees and also the same dormitory where the female worker lived. At present, 1,762 people have been tested, and 14 people have tested positive. Some are foreign migrant workers.

Hou Yu-ih, Mayor, New Taipei City: “They have conducted screenings all night from last night until just before I came. We'll check out the situation now. There are 14 positive confirmed cases. Most are foreign workers. The Shulin factory is basically in contact with the Taoyuan factory and other company divisions. We are still doing an epidemic tracing to determine the detailed source of the infection.”

Is the cluster infection related to the dormitories' management since migrant workers are all staying in them? Hou Yu-ih said that everyone gathered together during the Lunar New Year Festival. These next two weeks are an observation period, hoping that the epidemic can be effectively controlled during this time. As for New Taipei's cluster case of the family of four, after the younger sister was first diagnosed, her boyfriend's mother also tested positive. The source of infection is still being investigated. There are many companies in the same building where Deloitte Taiwan, the accounting firm that the older sister works at, is located. A total of 7,000 people are to be tested.

Tsai Ping-kun, Deputy Mayor, Taipei City: “We are using all the resources and power that the Taipei City Hospital system has to offer. We hope that these people can go do their PCR screenings at any of our branches. Going for a screening I think is a common concern for everyone. I hope we can accomplish this together because after all, it involves everyone's common security.”

Taipei City will slightly lower epidemic regulations on the 15th if the situation stabilizes, which will allow elderly people to eat meals together and food can be also allowed in movie theaters. New Taipei City has already resumed both of these activities. 

 

 

 

軟板大廠嘉聯益樹林廠9日有1名女性移工確診後,立即停工清消,並擴大採檢廠區和同宿舍員工,目前完成1762人採檢,有14人採檢陽性,大部分都是外籍移工。

新北市長侯友宜表示:「從昨天晚上連夜到剛剛我來之前,我們驗出來有14個陽性確診個案,大部分都是外籍移工,樹林電子廠因為基本上,它跟桃園廠以及跟地方都有所接觸,至於詳細的整個感染源,我們正在做疫調。」

由於移工都住宿,群聚感染是否跟宿舍管理有關?侯友宜表示,春節期間大家都聚在一起,這兩周是密切觀察期,希望在觀察期間能有效控制疫情。至於新北一家四口群聚案,妹妹最先確診後,又新增一位確診,是妹妹男友的母親,感染源還在釐清,姊姊任職的勤業眾信會計事務所所在的大樓有許多公司,一共匡列7千人採檢。

台北市副市長蔡炳坤表示:「我們的聯醫的所有量能,我們都開出來那希望說,這些民眾都能夠去做這個PCR,去做篩檢我想這個剛剛提到,這是一個大家共同來注意,共同來完成的事情,因為畢竟這涉及到大家共同的安全。」

如果疫情穩定,台北市將在15日微解封,有條件開放銀髮族共餐及電影院開放飲食,新北市日前早已恢復老人共餐和電影院飲食,會繼續保持現狀,全力鎖住疫情。
