Taipei Cycle organiser TAITRA has today announced the trade show set for March will go ahead as planned, although without its Chinese delegation, amidst concerns surrounding the outbreak of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in China and current international restrictions, Chinese exhibitors and visitors will not be able to travel to Taiwan to attend the show.
According to TAITRA, the Taiwanese government and Taiwan’s Centre for Disease Control have imposed strict precautionary measures from airports to local public areas to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
The organiser said it is constantly monitoring advice from relevant authorities and taking the necessary countermeasures to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors.
TAITRA is implementing the following measures to prevent further spread of the virus:
- All on-site personnel including outsourced contractors must wear face masks whilst on site and on duty
- Hand sanitiser to be available at each entrance and restroom of the exhibition halls, including staff and freight entrances
- TAITRA will co-operate with the exhibition hall operators to strengthen measures against further spread of the virus
- TAITRA will also ensure that it is working promptly in line with the national guidelines from Taiwan’s Centre for Disease Control
