Daycare Center Fined for Hiding Infectious Outbreak|涉隱匿腸病毒病例 北市1托嬰中心挨罰
It is currently enterovirus season. The Taipei City Department of Health recently discovered during inspections that a municipal daycare center had an outbreak of enterovirus at the end of July with seven children getting sick one after another. However, the daycare center only reported two sick children and is therefore suspected of trying to hide the situation. As it is the daycare center's first offense, however, the city will only be fining it NT$3,000 under the Communicable Disease Control Act.
In late July, a number of children at this daycare center off Taipei's Longjiang Road got sick with enterovirus infections. However, the school tried to hide the outbreak from the Department of Health.
Classes were suspended for one week starting (July) 22. There were some suspected cases later on, but we didn't know we were supposed to report suspected cases.
While the center says it did eventually suspend classes and sterilize classrooms, city health inspectors determined that seven of the center's 18 children, who were all under two years old, got sick starting on July 19. The center did not report the outbreak for three days and claimed there were only two cases when it finally did. As it is the center's first offense, it was only fined NT$3,000.
We looked at their staff and health records along with parent contact logs. We discovered there were several cases they did not report.
The department says it is currently enterovirus season and children under five are at high risk. Therefore, parents should make sure their children are maintaining good hygiene and washing their hands often.
Schools and daycare centers are required to report suspected cases of enterovirus and hand, foot, and mouth disease to the authorities within 48 hours. Failure to do so is punishable by a fine of up to NT$15,000.
