Taiwan to enforce quarantine anyone showing Wuhan virus symptoms

Travelers, regardless of nationality, who have recently been to China and are found to have “pneumonia-like symptoms” will now be subject to compulsory quarantine, Taiwan has announced, CNA reported.

The Centers for Disease Control, deputy director-general, Chuang Jen-hsiang, said today that the new measure took effect yesterday after more cases of the new coronavirus were confirmed in China and other parts of Asia over the weekend.

Previously, people were only quarantined if they developed pneumonia-like symptoms and had been to Wuhan, China, where the outbreak is believed to have first begun.

At the same time, those who have the above-mentioned symptoms and have been to China but fail to report their conditions to related health authorities could face a fine of up to NT$150,000 (US$4,959) for violating the Communicable Disease Control Act, according to the CDC.
