Proper precautions are being taken with transit passengers, and no Taiwanese or Taiwan-bound passengers were seated in the two rows in front and behind the woman during her EVA Air flights from Manila to Taiwan and then to Hong Kong, CECC spokesman Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) said.
The woman, in her 30s, arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at about 3pm on Friday and departed for Hong Kong at 4:40pm, so “she was in Taiwan for less than two hours,” Chuang said.
At that time, all passengers waiting for transfer flights wore masks, while airport ground staff wore protective goggles, gloves and masks when assisting passengers, Chuang said.
