Premier Su Tseng-chang launched a Facebook campaign on Monday, calling on the public to avoid unnecessary travel abroad after eight imported cases were reported earlier that day.
Starting from March 17, travelers contracting COVID-19 from government-designated Level 3 areas won’t receive any compensations during their quarantine period, according to the campaign.
“Quarantined people and their caretakers will receive NT$1,000 (US$33.1) as compensation during their quarantine,” the text reads. In addition, Su expressed his appreciation for those who have cooperated with the government to contain the disease (COVID-19) and expressed hopes that the subsidy could compensate for any income losses.
Those who insist on traveling to government-designated Level 3 areas should not receive any subsidies, the premier said. “Please think twice before you go abroad,” the text concluded.
