High-standard disease prevention measures have been prepared for a Czech delegation that is to arrive in Taiwan today, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said yesterday.

The 90-member delegation, headed by Czech Senate President Milos Vystrcil, is to visit Taiwan until Friday to bolster bilateral economic, scientific and cultural ties.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥), who is also the CECC spokesman, said that delegation members would have negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test certificates issued within three days before their departure, and be given another test by physicians at their hotel after they check in today.

They would be given a third PCR test on Tuesday, he added.    [FULL  STORY]
