On January 28, 1986, the Mobile Surveillance Team for the Northern Region notified the Bureau of Disease Control of a possible outbreak of amebiasis in a mental hospital in Teng Shwei, a suburb of Taipei. This report was prompted by the diagnosis of amebiasis in a mental patient who had been transferred from the hospital to the National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH).
