Presenting an analysis of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Taiwan, CECC advisory specialist panel convener Chang Shan-chwen (張上淳) said symptoms were mild or moderate in about 70 percent of the 235 patients across the country.
In the cases examined, the youngest patient was 4 years old, the oldest 88 and women slightly outnumbered men, with a median age of 32. About 12 percent were at high risk, Chang said.
Of the 235 cases, 38 were locally acquired while 197 were imported, according to Chang.
