TAIPEI (The China Post) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情指揮中心) reported 4 more local infected COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, among which two are family members of case 863.

Additional locations visited by case 864 are still under investigation, the CECC added.

On the other hand, case 865 is employed at the A7 shop of Mos Burger store at the Taoyuan Airport MRT where she worked shifts between Jan. 16 and Jan. 18.

The exact time of her shifts has yet to be determined, and the CECC urged those who had visited the store to practice self-health management and avoid taking public transportations during this time.

In addition, the CECC announced that only one other employee was there at the time (the manager) and they are currently under quarantine as well.

In light of the further spread of the hospital infections, Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) urged those who had been at the same locations during those few days to practice self-health management and seek medical attention if related symptoms develop before Feb. 1.
