TAIPEI (The China Post/ANN) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情指揮中心) clarified on Thursday the time slots of cases 863, 864 and 865’s whereabouts were extended in a bid to better ensure public safety.

According to Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中),  case 864 had been documented as having visited a soy milk stand (一品金湯豆漿王) on Hongchang 6th Street on Jan. 17 between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.; it doesn’t mean that he was there for three hours though.

The time provided to the public is to have more customers practice self-health management to effectively lower the possibility of further spread of COVID-19 infections. 

Chen continued to urge 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.
