The Changhua County Health Bureau’s self-promotion of “precise screening” should be questioned. Recently, Taiwan was involved in a domestic policy debate on whether or not individuals entering the the country should have general screening. However, compared to the partisan debate, Ih-Jen Su, former Director of the CDC, pointed out in an interview with this journal that there are we only have 30 days left to prepare for the incoming COVID-19 epidemic that may occur in the fall. This is a far more important concern.

Ih-Jen Su said that there are less than 2 months left before the beginning of autumn. Current discussion of the benefits of general entry screening is not beneficial. Unless there are changes in the domestic and international state of the pandemic, the policy does not need to be adjusted. More importantly, the priority should be on the flu season, which will start in October. How will quarantine and rapid screening be conducted. How do we deal with both influenza and COVID-19 at the same time? Is the flu vaccine satisfactory? Will people rush to fight for the vaccine and cause panic?
