Taiwan eases travel warning for China

Posted 5/11/2004 7:49 AM

TAIPEI (AFP) Taiwanese health officials have eased their travel alert for China after the discharge from hospital of a lab worker who was the mainland's first SARS patient this year, officials said Tuesday.
Taiwan's Center for Disease Control (CDC) reduced its "travel advisory" to a "travel alert" for Taiwanese traveling to Beijing and China's eastern province of Anhui two areas hit by the ongoing outbreak of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

Passengers traveling to Taiwan from Beijing and Anhui, as well as those travelling from China's Fujian province through the offshore islands of Kinmen and Matsu, will no longer face daily monitoring for SARS symptoms for the 10 days after their arrival.
