A Thai woman who entered Taiwan March 11 on a visitor visa and was detained by Taitung County police for engaging in sex work was recently confirmed to be infected with HIV, the county’s Public Health Bureau reported today.

The sex worker, who is 24-years-old and used the name “Patty,” sought out clients using social media platform LINE and could have had dozens of customers, the bureau said in a statement.

The woman has since been repatriated to Thailand, the bureau said, while advising those who had unprotected sex with her from March 13-22 to get tested for HIV within three months.

‘Patty’ is thought to be continuing her trade in Thailand. – The Hong Kong Standard
