Taiwan health minister warns to avoid 4 high risk areas of coronavirus

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) director and health minister Chen Shi-zhong gave warning on 4 high-risk areas of coronavirus which include: epidemic regions, big public assemblies, airplanes and hospitals.

The health minister said to avoid going to epidemic locations such as China, South Korea and Japan and one must not attend any big gatherings which are held indoors.

Chen says the Center is collecting information about gatherings in the country and will soon issue more detailed guidelines regarding those activities.

As for airplanes and hospitals, Chen suggests people stay away from them as much as possible.

He says the CECC is making preparations to expand its testing capability to communities, and that a total of 200 community testing facilities will be set up nationwide.

The testing in communities instead of in the hospital means that screenings for the coronavirus can be done at a much faster pace and to avoid crowd in public hospitals.
