The tourist, a woman from north Taiwan aged over 60, was announced as the 39th case of the virus in Taiwan on Saturday. She was the latest of a number of travelers who had been infected overseas.
While travel advisories for Dubai and Egypt were a possibility, CECC head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) cautioned the infection might have occurred during the flight. He therefore advised would-be travelers to avoid long-haul flights as spending a long time inside an enclosed space could increase the danger of infection, CNA reported. [FULL STORY]
