The level 2 “alert” means people are advised to take increased precautions when visiting Iran, he said. Meanwhile, Chen said the nation’s 32nd case of COVID-19 was confirmed yesterday. Four of the octogenarian’s family members — his wife, two sons and a grandson — have tested positive for the virus. CDC Director-General Chou Jih-haw (周志浩) said that all medical professionals who had close contact with the caregiver tested negative for COVID-19, so the contact investigation is mainly to find people she had close interaction with outside the hospital. Strict access control would be required for the specialized wards and healthcare personnel working in the wards would not perform duties in other departments to avoid cross infection, he said.
