TAIPEI adidas springblade udsalg , May 16 (Xinhua) -- Five patients have been diagnosed with the Hepatitis C virus due to repeated use of needles at a clinic in Taiwan's Taoyuan County, the island's disease control center said Tuesday.
This is the first hepatitis C virus outbreak ever reported at a Taiwan medical institution, according to Yang Ching-hui, a division chief at the center.
The center said that it had recently received reports of five acute cases of Hepatitis C. An investigation found that all five patients had received intravenous injections at a clinic in Taoyuan, which had re-used syringes and needles on different patients.
The clinic has been ordered to suspend injection services to avoid further infections.
The center said those who had received injections at the clinic between June 10 last year and May 12, 2017 were advised to take blood tests as the incubation period of hepatitis C could be up to six months.
Hepatitis C virus is a major cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. It has been described as the "shadow epidemic."
The virus can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis, ranging in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong complaint, according to the World Health Organization.

WELLINGTON, June 12 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand Foreign Minister Gerry Brownlee is encouraging all New Zealanders heading overseas to register with SafeTravel in case of an emergency such as terror attacks.
SafeTravel was launched in 2006 and is the official source of advice for New Zealanders living or travelling overseas.
"The site also allows travellers to register their contact details and travel plans so we can reach out to them in case of an emergency or to provide them with updated advice," Brownlee said in a statement on Monday.
"While recent terror attacks have occurred in popular destinations for New Zealand travellers -- such as London, Manchester and Paris -- it's a sad reality that such unprovoked incidents can happen anytime, anywhere," he said.
In the event of an incident overseas, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) can easily contact SafeTravel registrants to confirm their safety and wellbeing, Brownlee said.
"Trying to find out information about unregistered New Zealanders is often difficult and takes time," he said, adding that the MFAT was quickly able to contact registered Kiwis in London and Manchester after the recent terror attacks to offer information about consular assistance should they have required it.
"While it may seem obvious, I also want to encourage Kiwis travellers to phone home if they ever find themselves caught up in a major event," Brownlee said.
In the past year, there were almost 67,000 new registrants, bringing the total number to 148,312, and more than 8,320 of them are currently overseas, according to Brownlee.
"I hope all New Zealanders heading overseas will take 10 minutes to register with SafeTravel and encourage others to do the same," Brownlee said.
NANNING, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Police in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Guangdong Province busted a drug trafficking ring, with 22 suspects caught, authorities said Friday.
Around 170 kg of methamphetamine and ketamine and 14 vehicles were confiscated in more than 10 joint raids over the past year, according to the public security bureau of Guangxi's Guigang City.
In early 2016, Guigang police received a report and caught two suspects, seizing 19 kg of ketamine at a highway toll station in Guangxi.
The case led police to uncover a drug ring headed by a man surnamed Lin. The ring conducted criminal activities in Guangxi and Guangdong. In late August, Lin was caught in a residential community in Pingnan County.
Further investigation is under way.
China's anti-drug efforts have also intensified. Chinese police arrested 168,000 suspects for drug production or trafficking and solved 140,000 drug-related criminal cases last year.
