31 People Tested Positive in Yilan Detention Center Cluster 晶園婚宴鏈燒進宜蘭收容所 累積31人確診

A cluster infection has broken out at a detention center in Yilan after a security guard working at the facility tested positve. The total number of confirmed cases has risen to 31.


A security guard is at the center of a cluster infection at a Yilan Detention Center. A total of 31 people at the facility have tested positive since the 14th, including 14 staff, 15 residents and two staff family members. The Public Health Bureau recently tested everyone at the center.

Hsu Chiu-chun, Deputy Director, Public Health Bureau, Yilan County: “We currently have 31 patients from various transmission chains at central detention facilities. We went medical teams to all the facilities today to test the patients and facility staff.”

According to the bureau, the security guard was infected at a wedding banquet and the virus is spreading rapidly at his workplace. Five inmates at the Taipei Detention Center, meanwhile, have also tested positive while in quarantine. The center says all five were negative when they arrived at the center. One of the five had a positive PCR test after starting to feel unwell. 

Hsu Chin-biao, Deputy Director, Agency of Corrections: “We sent five positive cases to the hospital yesterday. We were notified last night that one of them tested positive on a PCR test. The results of the others have not yet come back.”

The Agency of Corrections says the five inmates were immediately taken to a designated hospital to keep the outbreak from spreading. The center has implemented flow controls and disinfected the premises and asked all inmates and staff to perform self-health management. Anyone that develops symptoms will be taken to a hospital to be tested.

 

 

收容所保全出來阻擋記者鏡頭,不讓拍攝,所內人員忙進忙出,相當低調。宜蘭收容所爆發群聚案,14日至今已累積31人確診,包含員工有14人、收容人15人,以及相關人員家屬2人。衛生局將派醫療團隊進到收容所為所有人員篩檢,盼阻斷傳播鏈。

宜蘭縣衛生局副局長徐秋君表示:「現在整個收容所的傳染鏈總共有31位人員確診,也因此我們今天派出醫療團隊,會進去整個收容所來進行所有的收容人,包括員工整體的篩檢。」

根據衛生局疫調,宜蘭收容所14日先由一名保全,因參加晶園會館婚宴而確診,後陸續有收容人確診,傳播鏈逐步擴大,且除了宜蘭收容所,維持受刑人「零確診」紀錄的台北看守所,也爆出有5名新收容人在隔離期間確診。收容所表示,5名收容人入所後快篩陰性,但隔離期間其中1名收容人身體不適,且快篩PCR陽性,另4名收容人後續檢測結果也是陽性。

法務部矯正署副署長許金標表示:「昨天是有5個陽性反應的送去醫院,其中昨天晚上得到消息,其中有一個PCR是陽性反應,那其它的結果還沒有出來。」

矯正署說,5名確診收容人,已立即依規定送專責醫院收治,為進一步防範未然,臺北看守所已立即啟動應變防疫措施,落實分艙分流管制,進行環境清消,並要求收容人及職員自主健康管理,如有疑似症狀將即刻安排就醫檢查。
