Attention Please! China through onboard quarantine; Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) raises travel notice level for Wuhan, China to Level 3: Warning

As the number of cases in Wuhan is increasing rapidly, Chinese infectious disease experts have strongly advised travelers from visiting Wuhan. On January 21, WHO pointed out that the 2019 novel coronavirus might sustain human-to-human transmission. As the first imported case from Wuhan has been confirmed in Taiwan, CECC announced raising the travel notice level for Wuhan to Level 3: Warning, reminding the public to avoid all non-essential travels to Wuhan.
Taiwan CDC reminds travelers planning to visit Wuhan or other neighboring areas in China recently to wash hands thoroughly with soap, wear a face mask and seek medical attention when coughing, avoid contact with wild animals and patients with acute respiratory tract infections, and avoid visiting traditional markets and healthcare facilities throughout the trip. If symptoms such as fever or cough develop upon arriving in Taiwan, please voluntarily notify the quarantine officer at the quarantine station in the airport/port. If the aforementioned symptoms develop within 14 days after returning to Taiwan, please put on a surgical mask and seek immediate medical attention. Moreover, please inform the physician of any history of travel, occupation, contact, and cluster (TOCC) to facilitate timely diagnosis and prompt case-reporting. For more information on severe special infectious pneumonia, please visit the Taiwan CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov.tw/En or call the toll-free Communicable Disease Reporting and Consultation Hotline, 1922 (or 0800-001922).
