Fighting against Wuhan pneumonia, Maolin National Scenic Area Administration encourages the public to join force


As soon as COVID-19 (Wuhan pneumonia) broke out at the end of 2019 in Hubei, China, the Taiwan government set up firewalls against the disease. At Maolin National Scenic Area, the Administration has also strengthened disease prevention since then. These days, necessary public health information is being further disseminated in multiple ways to keep the situation under control.

Maolin National Scenic Area Administration Director Chien Ching-fa noted that, although the scenic area surrounded by Kaohsiung and Pingtung mountains is rather remote, he and his team have nonetheless actively carried out disease-prevention work. Sterilizers are spread all over visitor centers and tourist destinations, and all guided-tour volunteers and service staffs must wear surgical masks (disposed every 4 hours) while on duty. Alcohol sprays, ear thermometers, and COVID-19 information flyers are provided, as a way to facilitate disease prevention.

The Administration will continue to spread messages on disease prevention and control at the scenic area’s website, digital marquee signs, Facebook page, and LINE@, including the things to note when visiting the scenic area, as well as the steps to take in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control’s work. There is no need to panic and during this time period visitors can still expect a safe and pleasant journey as long as they follow all instructions.

Again, in case of fever, coughs, or any similar symptoms, put on a surgical mask and go to a doctor as quickly as possible, and report to a health agency whilst staying away from the crowd. Call free disease prevention and control hotline at 1922 (or 0800-001922) to reduce the chance of spreading Wuhan pneumonia to family and people around you.
