Yang-Tze High School Student Confirmed with COVID-19 虎尾揚子高中學生確診 今篩檢1167師生

Over 1,000 teachers and students from Huwei's Yang-Tze High School were screened after a student tested positive for COVID-19. Classes will also be suspended for 10 days to prevent the epidemic from spreading. 


Students gathered outside the activity center on the morning of the 8th to receive PCR tests one by one. There were two new confirmed cases on the 7th in Yunlin County. One of which was a student from Huwei's Yang-Tze High School. In order to prevent the further spread of the transmission chain, the county's health bureau cooperated with three hospitals in the county to conduct screenings at the school.

Chao Yueh-tsung, Director, Medical Affairs Section, Health Bureau, Yunlin County: “The confirmed student got infected from his travels. Of course, this virus is more contagious so we are carrying out preventive screening to protect students and our staff.”

The Health Bureau stated that the confirmed student attends Yang-Tze High School and lives in Douliu City. He was originally quarantined due to possible contact with another confirmed case during his travels. His PCR test returned positive on the 6th and was quickly arranged to be treated in a hospital isolation ward. The student's entire class will be suspended from attending school for 10 days starting on the 6th.

Chung Yueh-o, Principal, Yang-Tze High School: “Those who came in contact with the confirmed student will be quarantined for 10 days. Our county government has been very proactive in regards to other students who did not come into contact with the confirmed student. In order to alleviate the doubts of parents and our community, we are carrying out a comprehensive, general screening of teachers, students, and staff on the 8th.”

The Health Bureau stated that a total of 1,167 staff and students were screened. The preventive screening was carried out even though none of them had direct contact with the confirmed case, in order to prevent the epidemic's spread. PCR test results will be released within 24 hours.

 

 

 

8日一早學生陸續到活動中心外集合,一一進行PCR檢測,因為雲林縣7日新增2例本土確診,其中一名是虎尾揚子高中學生,為了防堵疫情再擴散,衛生局媒合縣內3家醫院,8日到校方進行全面篩檢。

雲林縣衛生局醫政科科長趙曰聰表示:「校園確診者他是因為旅遊史的關係,被匡列成居家隔離,最後是確診的,當然我們這病毒傳染力比較強,所以我們做一個預防性的篩檢,保護學生也保護我們的教職員工。」

衛生局表示,這名學生是私立揚子高中高中部學生,平時住在斗六市,因為被匡列居隔採檢,6日PCR結果陽性,就已安排在醫院隔離治療,目前該班學生也從6日開始停課10天。

揚子高中校長鍾月娥說明:「已經接觸者都是10天隔離,那其他沒有接觸的同學,我們縣政府這邊也非常積極,為了減輕家長跟社會上的疑慮,所以我們今天做全面性的師生教職員工的大普篩。」

衛生局表示,此次篩檢對象包含教職員與學生總共1167名,雖然都不是與確診者直接接觸,但為了防堵疫情擴散,預防性再做篩檢,預估到8日下午才能完成,而PCR採檢結果會在24小時內出爐。
