All of the patients are Taiwanese, said Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥), who is also the CECC’s spokesman.
Case No. 519 is a man in his 30s who permanently works in the US and has been returning to Taiwan every two to three months, Chuang said, adding that he did not show any symptoms in the US and arrived in Taiwan on Sunday.
The man reported to quarantine officers upon arrival that he experienced throat itchiness during the flight and was tested for COVID-19, with the result coming back positive yesterday, he said. [FULL STORY]
