連至 Preventing the Epidemic from escalating, Caotun Community Testing Station has been activated May 26th 完整照片 The epidemic in Nantou County has been escalating and the Nantou County Government Department of Health has activated the “Community Testing Station” in the Caotun Township on May 26th to provide testing services for the public to promptly prevent the risk for local transmission.

The number of confirmed cases in the Caotun Township has been increasing recently, and the community testing station has commissioned the staff from the Caotun Township’s Public Health Center, and local grassroot clinics to allocate approximately 30 individuals in total to conduct testing at Zhongshan Village Assembly Hall in Caotun Township and effectively minimize the impact of the epidemic. The subjects for testing are those who have overlapping footprints of confirmed cases recently announced by the county government, those who believe they have clinical symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, upper respiratory tract symptoms, gastrointestinal symptoms), and those who have recently visited Dongfanghong Guest House for consumption and others that have contact with relevant personnel. The testing time is from 2 pm to 4 pm and when the testing station was established, approximately 50 people were waiting in line to be tested. A total of 120 people were tested during this local test with 2 positive cases, and subsequent PCR tests resulted in 1 positive case while the other was a negative case.

Senior Specialist A-yi Lin of the County’s Department of Health explained that the on-site testing was divided into five stations, namely the registration area, the waiting area, the testing area, the inspection area, and the standby area. After taking a number, people need to wait for their numbers to be called to register their information as real-name registration is used. Temperature measurements are then taken as individuals are disinfected with alcohol before they are allowed to begin the testing process. Individuals must also maintain social distancing of 1.5 meters throughout the testing process, and wait for guidance from the on-site staff.

She also mentioned that the testing area is located within the county government mobile testing vehicle, individuals will stand at the stairs of the entrance where doctors within the vehicle will test the individuals. The on-site staff will then deliver the test kits to the inspection area, and the tested individuals will wait for their results in the standby area. In addition, the testing vehicle and the inspection area are protected by plastic shields to minimize the risk of infection.
