A man doing compulsory quarantine in Taiwan was fined 100,000 local dollars (about 2,900 euros) for a prank of… eight seconds. In accordance with the health regulations in force to fight against the coronavirus, this migrant who came from the Philippines to work was in solitary confinement in a hotel in Kaohsiung, reports CNN Tuesday. He is accused of having left his room for a brief moment.

His few steps in the hallway were filmed by a CCTV camera. Upon seeing the footage, hotel staff then contacted the Ministry of Health, the official Taiwan Central News Agency (CNA) news agency said. People placed in quarantine have a strict obligation to remain confined to their room. No outing is tolerated, even short.

Requisitioned hotels

The Taiwanese system to fight the Covid-19 pandemic is based, among other things, on a period of quarantine of arrivals in the country. Hotels have been specifically designated for the application of this measure. The city of Kaohsiung has 56, for a total of 3,000 rooms reserved for visitors. The health ministry recalled that all people leaving their rooms would be fined.

Taiwan’s 23 million people have at no time been confined or subjected to significant restrictions on movement or activity. The country has focused its health policy on a reaction from the end of December 2019, massive diagnostic campaigns and an effective tracing system. The island has only recorded 716 cases of Covid-19 and seven deaths from the disease.
