A police officer caught a woman riding a scooter when supposed to be she should at home. The woman explained that she just needed to buy food.

The police officer informed her that this was an illegal act. She again tried to justify her reckless decision, saying "I just wanted to buy something because there's no one at home."

He sent a report of the case to the relevant authorities to decide on the appropriate punishment.

On Monday (March 23) Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) uploaded a post on his Facebook page in which he stated that four persons in Taiwan have been handed the maximum fine of NT$1 million (US$33,000) for violating their quarantines. He also wrote that the government is "not made out of plastic [not weak]" and that is not just doing this "for show."

Taiwan has been the envy of the world due to the Central Epidemic Command Center's astute handling of the COVID-19 outbreak.
