Taipei, April 5 (CNA) The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) on Sunday said it conducted disinfection operations at most of the country's major tourist spots earlier in the day and will do at the remaining sites and Taipei Main Station later the same day as a preventive measure to avoid a potential COVID-19 spike following the 4-day Tomb Sweeping Festival break.

The EPA said as most vacationers returned home from tourist hot spots early Sunday with the holiday drawing to an end, it has asked local disinfection teams to disinfect a number of attractions widely visited during the 4-day break.

The locations disinfected on Sunday morning included the main street of Kenting and other areas in southeastern Pingtung County's Hengchun Peninsula, which is famous for beaches and water sports.

Other sites included Beigang Chaotian Temple in southern Yunlin County; Alishan National Scenery Area in southern Chiayi County; Dongdamen Tourist Night Market in eastern Hualien County; Wusanto Reservoir in southern Tainan City, as well as Xingda Fishing Port in the southern city of Kaohsiung, among others, according to the EPA    [FULL STORY]
