【看CP學英文】新冠肺炎疫情持續,中央流行疫情指揮中心今(6)日公布國內新增1例境外移入COVID-19(新冠肺炎)病例(案439),為30多歲女性,於今(2020)年1月至英國工作,4月26日返國。

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Wednesday reported 1 new imported case of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, bringing the total number in Taiwan to 439.

Case 439 is a woman in her thirties who had traveled to the U.S. for work in January and returned to Taiwan on April 26.

指揮中心表示,個案返國當天即有鼻塞、倦怠症狀,入境時主動申報後,由機場檢疫人員採檢並送至集中檢疫所,因檢驗結果為陰性,27日由檢疫所安排入住防疫旅館。個案居家檢疫期間持續有流鼻水及鼻塞,且出現味覺異常症狀,5月4日由衛生單位協助安排就醫採檢,於今日確診,目前住院隔離治療。

According to the CECC, case 439 had experienced nasal congestion and fatigue prior to her arrival in Taiwan. She reported these symptoms accordingly after disembarking from the plane.

She was immediately tested but the results were negative so she was placed in a quarantine hotel pending further investigation.

As she continued to experience a runny nose, nasal congestion and abnormal sense of taste, health authorities had her take another test on May 4.

Her infection was confirmed today and she is currently under quarantine in a hospital.

指揮中心指出,個案入境後即由相關單位安排入住集中檢疫所及防疫旅館,並未與親友接觸,將進一步調查同班機旅客,以進行接觸者匡列。

“She was immediately placed in a quarantine hotel after arriving in Taiwan and had no contact with friends or family,” health minister Chen Shih-chung said, and assured the public that all passengers from the same flight have been listed as close contacts for further investigation.
