Philippine will pay $3.5 thousand for quarantine violation only for eight seconds

In Taiwan, a man was fined for violating quarantine rules for only eight seconds. The penalty was 3.5 thousand dollars.

As noted, a migrant worker from the Philippines, who was in two weeks’ isolation at a hotel in Kaohsiung city, was guilty. The man decided to leave his room for a short while and walk along the corridor. This was recorded by CCTV cameras. Hotel staff wrote a complaint about quarantine violations to the local Health Ministry.

In Taiwan, it is forbidden to leave the house during quarantine. There are 56 “quarantine” hotels in Kaohsiung, with about three thousand rooms. Taiwan is one of the leaders in the fight against coronavirus in the world. During the entire period of the pandemic on an island with a population of 23 million people have identified only 716 cases.

Let’s remind, that in September in Australia the police of New South Wales state arrested the man who has broken the quarantine operating in the country, having invented a story about the dying grandfather.
