The Shanghai health authorities announced on their Weibo page on Sunday that three people had tested positive for the disease upon or after their return from Taiwan and Russia.
According to the post, the Taiwanese patient, a man in his 20s, arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Aug. 27. He was screened on arrival and has since been staying at a managed isolation facility, where he is said to have exhibited symptoms of the virus.
Taiwanese Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) Spokesperson Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) explained that the Taiwanese passenger had been living in the U.S. since 2006. He returned to Taiwan on Aug. 4 and reported no symptoms during his 14 days of home quarantine.
