With 2,533 confirmed cases in Taiwan, authorities have now raised the epidemic warning to level 3, leading to businesses issuing work-from-home options or bringing their virus-prevention measures to the next level.
One particular company took even more dramatic measures as it set up a car-wash-like “disinfectant aisle” for employees to walk through before they enter the building.
According to a Facebook post published on Wednesday, employees need to walk through a transparent tarp set up outside the building; once the device detects movement, it begins spraying disinfectant from all sides of the aisle onto the person.
The process was captured by a social media user who wrote, “What is this — a car wash?”
Others soon flocked to the comment section and jokingly advised that all who go through the “car wash” should put their minds in “neutral” and avoid braking mid-process.
Some also questioned whether the mechanism was appropriate, as it would seem the person would be drenched from head to toe in disinfectant after coming out of the tarp.
Still, quite a few suggested that the structure should be placed in all public areas especially places where many pass through every day, including train and MRT stations, to better ensure the safety of Taiwanese people.
