【看英文中國郵報學英文】一名30多歲男性(指標個案)在越南感染麻疹,造成國泰醫院麻疹群聚感染。 

Measles recently broke out in Cathay General Hospital Taipei Branch as a 30-year-old man returned from Vietnam where he was infected.

前有北市國泰醫院4名醫護人員接觸指標個案時遭感染,疾管署今(20)日又再度公布2人也遭指標個案感染,一共傳染8人。新增2名遭指標個案感染的案例中,其中1人為國泰醫院20多歲女性護理師;另一人為北部40多歲男性,是指標個案就醫接觸者在急診室的陪病家屬。

So far, a total of eight people were infected. Four medical professionals from the Cathay Hospital were affected previously, while the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced on Aug. 20 that two more infections were confirmed. One is a 20-year-old female nurse, while the other, a 40-year-old man, is a family member of a person who was in contact with the measles patient in the emergency room.

 疾管署副署長莊人祥說,該起群聚事件截至目前共計9人確診,衛生單位正追蹤接觸者共1879人,將持續監測至9月8日。

Chuang Jen-hsiang, the deputy director of the CDC, said there were nine people confirmed to be infected in this measles outbreak so far. He added that the health bureau is following a total of 1,897 people who were in contact with the patients, and monitoring them until Sept. 8.

據疾管署統計,我國今年累計122例麻疹病例,其中75例為國內感染,47例為境外移入病例,感染國家以越南17例、泰國12例及菲律賓7例為多。

According to the CDC, there were 122 cases of measles this year in Taiwan. Seventy-five cases were infected domestically, while others were infected overseas. Seventeen people were infected in Vietnam, 12 in Thailand, and seven in the Philippines.

疾管署呼籲,麻疹傳染力強,民眾出入醫院或人潮密集之場所,應戴口罩以降低病毒傳播的風險。另避免帶未滿1歲或未接種MMR疫苗的幼兒前往麻疹流行地區。自流行地區返國後如出現發燒、鼻炎、結膜炎、咳嗽、紅疹等疑似症狀,應配戴口罩儘速就醫並告知醫師旅遊史。

CDC reminds the public that measles is a highly contagious virus and suggests wearing a mask when entering hospitals or crowded areas to prevent being infected. Besides, the office said people should avoid taking a baby under the age of one or anyone without an MMR vaccination to areas where measles are commonly found. Furthermore, people should immediately seek medical treatment if displaying symptoms such as fever, runny or stuffy nose, conjunctivitis, cough, or rash after returning from those areas.
