Taipei, April 4 (CNA) Two more members of a 17-person tour group to Austria and the Czech Republic were confirmed as having contracted the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Saturday, bringing the group's cluster infections to eight, the Central Epidemic Control Center (CECC) said that day.

The two individuals from the group that traveled from March 5-14 showed no symptoms, said Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥), deputy director-general of the Centers for Disease Control and CECC spokesman.

It was not until the CECC learned that six members of the tour group were already infected, including one death, that it recalled all group members for a COVID-19 test and identified the two new cases.

The two patients had developed pulmonary infiltration, Chuang said, adding that the other nine members are still being tested.    [FULL  STORY]
