新冠病毒疫情延燒,民眾對酒精的需求大幅增加。

Owing to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, consumers have been vying for rubbing alcohol to fight the epidemic which has led to an island-wide shortage.

為解決一瓶難求的現象,台糖近推出每瓶容量為350ml,售價45元的75%平價防疫酒精,於全家便利商店販售。

In order to meet soaring demand, Taiwan Sugar Corporation has been allowed to distribute 350 ml bottles of rubbing alcohol priced at NT$45 at convenience stores near you.

台糖強調,為了將有限資源更普及化,在全家便利商店開賣的75%防疫酒精採限量販售,首波每人限購1瓶。

To ensure that a maximum of people can make a purchase, sales are limited to one bottle per person, the company said.

另依政府相關法規18歲以下不得購買,請消費者注意。

In addition, in accordance with the government’s regulations, only legal adults (older than  18 years old) are permitted to buy them.

台糖表示,目前台灣在抗菌防疫上做得扎實,但仍不能鬆懈。

Although Taiwan has done its best at preventing the spread of the virus, one can never be too careful, the company said.

特別是新冠病毒傳染途徑包括接觸傳染,所以勤洗手及消毒是阻擋病毒傳播很重要的方法。

Especially when the virus can be spread through contact, making washing and disinfecting hands particularly important, the company added.
