By: Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
The Indonesian worker, listed as case No. 688, tested negative several times after her arrival in Taiwan on Nov. 13. However, a test requested by her employer and conducted on Dec. 1 turned out positive.
Following her compulsory 14-day quarantine, the Indonesian had been asked to self-monitor her health while staying at a dormitory with 47 other workers. The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) ordered those workers to be supervised and tested at a joint facility, but one of the 47 could not be found, CNA reported.
The missing person is a Vietnamese woman in her 30s who entered Taiwan on Nov. 13 and left quarantine on Nov. 28 following two negative tests. She stayed at a dormitory designated by a migrant broker Nov. 28-30 and at her Taiwanese employer’s home from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2. On the last day, she left the house in the morning but never returned, the report said.
