Taichung Mayor Lu Hsiu-yen announced on Saturday (May 15) that 11 types of venues and 11 night markets will be shut down, while places of worship will suspend group activities due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.

Lu said the 11 public spaces to be closed are: KTVs, saunas, dance halls, discos, bars, pubs, cafes and tea parlors, nightclubs, beer halls, internet cafes, and gaming parlors.

The decision comes after the Central Epidemic Control centre reported a record 29 domestic coronavirus transmissions on Friday (May 14). The shuttering is expected to last until June 8.
