【看英文中國郵報學英文】中央流行疫情指揮中心今(11)日公布國內第48例COVID-19(武漢肺炎)確定病例,為北部30多歲女性,2月28日至3月8日獨自前往英國旅遊及探訪當地友人,返國後於3月9日因頭暈、頭痛等症狀至診所就醫,因出現微燒及輕微咳嗽,於3月10日至醫院就醫,經通報檢驗於今日確診,目前收治負壓隔離病房治療。

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情中心) on Wednesday reported a new imported case of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, bringing the total number in Taiwan to 48.

Case 48 is a woman in her thirties who visited the United Kingdom from Feb. 28 to March 8.

Upon her return on March 9, she experienced dizziness and headaches so she immediately sought medical help. With a slight fever and cough, the woman was hospitalized on March 10, and her infection was confirmed today.

She has now been moved to a negative-pressure isolation room.

指揮中心表示,依個案發病前活動史研判,於境外感染的可能性較高;個案同住家人目前皆無疑似症狀,將進一步調查個案在英國期間之旅遊行程,並持續追蹤其同住親友、英國當地友人、同機旅客及就醫接觸者等健康情形。

 

The CECC determined that due to the woman’s recent travel history, the woman is most likely an imported case.

Family and friends are all being monitored but they have yet to show symptoms, according to the CECC.

Health authorities are continuously tracking down travel records and all contacts of case 48, including those on the same flight and all others who may have been in contact with her in the UK when she sought medical help.
