An individual confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 visited the Raohe Night Market in Taipei, prompting the tourist hotspot to close down for disinfection, the city’s health department said Friday.
The Taipei City government did not reveal much about the case, except that the cycle threshold (CT) value of the person’s COVID-19 PCR test was 35, indicating that the individual had been infected for a while and was most likely relatively less infectious.
Another test on the subject administered Friday also came back negative, suggesting a lack of contagiousness, the city’s environmental protection department added.
The department also said that the individual was being classified as an imported case, who underwent testing again to be approved to travel after being released from an initial quarantine period after arriving in Taiwan.
The environmental protection department went on to add that after receiving a notification from the city’s health department, the night market had been shut down for disinfection and would be closed until Saturday afternoon.
