A total M-E-S-S, is what this is here! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
As the pandemic of MERS-CoV grew, there are more and more college and university students who’d been confirmed of contraction, making the schools stressed out about the problems of quarantine, even in N.T.U., there’s the outrageous, unbelievable conditions of those who’d contracted the virus being placed in the conference rooms, and the tents inside the school’s buildings.
From the government’s “getting ahead” to “help yourselves, adapt on your own”, the mottos of the government, truly, tests the local universities, community colleges’ ability to adapt all right. In the past the online members here in Taiwan laughed at how the ark hospitals in China, calling them the “concentration camps” of those who’d contracted the virus, and now, there’s the “mini ark” in the most prestigious university in the lecture halls, with the students’ kind reminders of, “remember to stay in tent number two, if you want access of the extension cord””, does this not make those government officials who preached about getting ahead feel ashamed of themselves?
It’d been for long since the demands of the schools’ dormitories exceeding the supplies, that was why the situation in N.T.U. is happening right now, and, in other universities across the island, there are the instances of the MERS-CoV positive students, sharing the same living space as those students who are healthy. And so, the “at-resident quarantine” of the student’s, the transportation means should be left to the schools individually to do, this is, the means, of resolving this problem; and toward the “foreign exchange students”, they would have to wait until the dorms occupied by the students here gets cleared out, then, they will be able to use the dorms as a site for their, quarantine.
And, one of the universities’ responsibilities is to look after the students, and yet, there’s this, “tent situation” in N.T.U. here right now, and, we can imagine, that the other universities around the island aren’t faring any better. The government should not have just “one rule”, but a series of rules that can be adapted to the different conditions of the needs of the students, from “we can’t get the masks to we can’t get the vaccines, to now, we can’t get the quick scans”, does the Department of Education have enough quick-scan kits for all the students?
The epidemic, along with the number of confirmed diagnoses is determinant of whether or not the in-class sessions are to be halted, and the afterwards of at-home quarantine, hospitalization, and the health of those who hadn’t contracted the virus, is more important of all. The CDC’s policies, communication with the schools needed to get up to speed. From before the CDC mandated the three-doses for the tour groups, the head of the department of transportation only came to know upon reading the reports, and now, the CDC is seeing the troubles the students of the N.T.U. are experiencing in the quarantines, and, should it NOT discuss with the Department of Education, on coming up with a plan to tackle this matter?
And, these are, only the stuff that the CDC overlooked, as the HEAD of the CDC is no longer, with his mind intact, on, how to, tackle the pandemic, but on how to win the mayoral race of Taipei here, and this still just showed, how the government can abuse its power, making the peoples’ lives, a living hell, and the party controlling this god DAMN country is still, clueless of what it’s doing!
