Taiwan’s embassy in Honduras adds one COVID-19 case

Taipei,  Taiwan’s embassy in Honduras reported an additional COVID-19 case on Jan. 8 after a first case was reported a day earlier, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

In a statement, MOFA said the second positive case was reported after all of the personnel in the embassy and the family members of the first confirmed case in the embassy took a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

After the first case was discovered, the embassy announced it would be closed until Jan. 22 and that its offices would be disinfected while staff members worked from home during that time.

On Monday, the ministry said the embassy will arrange a second PCR test on Jan. 22 for all of its personnel and the family members of the two confirmed cases to make sure it is safe for them to go back to work.

Consular services in Honduras are currently being handled on an appointment basis, MOFA said, and applicants for such services can arrange appointments and send required documents by email to hnd@mofa.gov.tw.
