Of the five new cases, two are foreign students who arrived in Taiwan for study — one from Indonesia and one from Russia. That brings the total number of imported cases among foreign students to six.
The remaining three cases include a Taiwanese man in his 20s who had been working in France, a Taiwanese man in his 40s who had been working in the Philippines, and a Filipino man who had arrived in Taiwan for work.
Epidemic prevention officials have already traced most of the contacts of the five new cases. Some have been placed in isolation, while others have been ordered to monitor their health.
