Taiwan cautioned people in Kaohsiung and Tainan on coronavirus alert after Westerdam cruise visit

Taiwan officials on Monday cautioned residents and people who had visited Kaohsiung and Tainan on Feb. 4 to monitor their heath closely.

This is due to a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus virus (COVID-19) among the tourists from MS Westerdam cruise ship that visited Kaohsiung and Tainan last Feb 4.

The MS Westerdam was docked for four and a half hours at Kaohsiung Port on Feb 4, and some of the passengers visited several sites in the south of the country, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The places include Fort Provintia and Chimei Museum in Tainan, No. 2 and No.9 at Kaohsiung Port, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts and Kenting in Pingtung County.

Anyone who are on the above areas last Feb 4 until noon are advised to closely monitor their health, CECC advised.

The advisory was issued after it was confirmed Saturday that one of the cruise ship passengers, an American woman, had tested positive for the COVID-19.

A number of passengers from the cruise ship had visited the listed sites in Tainan, the American woman was not among them, according to Tainan mayor.
