[Real-time news/comprehensive report]In response to the epidemic, the Central Epidemic Command Center stipulates that people must implement the “real connection system” when entering and leaving indoor public places. Recently, it has been circulating on the Internet that “the real connection system requires payment to scan QR Code” and calls for people to sign in person Completed the actual linkage system; Taiwan’s Fact-Checking Center stated that the public does not have to pay any fees.

Recently, a message circulated on social platforms and communication software, combined with a news video, said, “Entering a QR scan in various places such as supermarkets, NT$800 million is in ~ Tang Feng’s pocket!” Other similar messages are also circulating on the Internet. Said, “Don’t scan the QR Code anymore when you enter and exit the supermarket. It must send messages to the command center via SMS, and the telephone company charges a fee for sending SMS. Honestly declare your footprints, cooperate with the government in investigating the epidemic situation, and pay for it yourself. The government’s approach is very unreasonable. I would rather bring a pen and sign it by hand than spend unnecessary money.”

The “Taiwan Fact-Checking Center” stated that the first meeting of the first temporary meeting of the 10th session of the Legislative Yuan was held on June 9 this year. The content was “The National Communications Commission has allocated 1.44455 million yuan to handle the epidemic.

Therefore, the telecommunications The business requires additional equipment expansion, construction of related software and hardware systems, and additional manpower, all of which require considerable costs. The related costs are difficult to estimate in advance. Therefore, the budget is compiled based on the number of newsletters as a reference, and the annual budget is 800 million yuan. “Processing fees” are not calculated on a case-by-case basis based on the actual usage of the SMS.

NCC Deputy Chairman and Spokesperson Weng Baizong said that this budget is used to pay for telecom operators’ connected services, and it is the upper limit of maintenance costs. The excess part is borne by the telecom operators. There is no need for the public to send more text messages, and the government has to pay more. In the case of high costs, the telecommunications industry also stated that they will not charge the people or shops for the short message fees generated by the connection system. In order to meet the national epidemic prevention needs, the government will give the government a fixed amount of free text messages.

In addition, regarding the rumored 800 million yuan will go to Tang Feng’s pocket, Kuomintang legislator Lai Shibao said that the rumor that “800 million yuan will go to Tang Feng’s pocket” is not a fact. phoenix.
