The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) yesterday reported four new imported cases of COVID-19 — a traveler from Indonesia and three from the Philippines — bringing the total number of confirmed cases in Taiwan to 724.

The four people, all migrant workers, arrived in Taiwan on Nov. 25 and 26, and were tested before the end of their mandatory 14-day quarantine, the CECC said, adding that the results came back positive yesterday.

All migrant workers from the Philippines and Indonesia, except those hired as fishers, are required to quarantine for 14 days at a designated government-run center and are tested for COVID-19 a few days before their quarantine ends, the CECC said.

The worker from Indonesia, a woman in her 30s, presented a negative COVID-19 test upon her arrival in Taiwan on Nov. 25, the CECC said.    [FULL  STORY]
