Taiwan prepares 400 beds for migrant workers who are subject to 14-days quarantine

Taiwan's Central Epidemic Control Center (CECC) has made available 400 beds at several quarantine locations for the use of migrant workers who must undergo home quarantine for 14 days, based upon their needs.

As of Friday, Taiwan had confirmed 135 cases of the coronavirus disease, of which 102 were imported, with two fatalities.

Faced with calls from some quarters for the government to assist in finding accommodation for the quarantined migrant workers, CECC Deputy Commander Chen Tsung-yen said Friday that the center has asked the supervising Ministry of Labor to formulate a management plan.

If the companies need to, they can rent the CECC's 400 beds for the use of quarantined workers, Chen went on, adding that the beds are also available for independent employers who are unable to provide rented accommodation for their quarantined workers.
