CDC unveils 90 locations in Taiwan visited by 24 sailors infected with COVID-19

A google map showing the 90 locations across Taiwan traveled by 24 sailors diagnosed with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was revealed by Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on Monday (April 20).

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC)  estimated that the 24 sailors from the "Fleet of Friendship" have traveled to about 90 locations in 10 counties and cities across Taiwan between April 15 and 18, including Keelung, New Taipei, Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung, Yunlin, Chiayi, Tainan, Kaohsiung, and Pingtung.

Earlier on Sunday, CECC spokesperson Chuang Jen-hsiang said that the government would send a text message later that day to warn the public about where the sailors have spent their days in the country.

Some areas visited by the sailors such as a Carrefour and Costco in Kaohsiung were already shutted down for disinfection. Places identified include High-Speed Rail (HSR) stations, Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) stations, Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations, fitness centers, KTV clubs, hotpot restaurants, malls, cafes, temples, churches, car washes, convenience stores, college campuses, and even a love hotel.

Based on the locations identified, the sailors went to every major population center in western Taiwan except for eastern and central Taiwan.
