The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情指揮中心) on Monday reported 2 new imported cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infections, bringing the tally to 422 confirmed cases in Taiwan.
Yesterday saw an additional 628 pneumonia-related reports released (not including the navy cluster infections), and as of press time, the tally was 53,632 (including 51,219 already dismissed), with 422 confirmed.
Among the 422 confirmed cases, 343 are imported, 55 are categorized as local infections, including 24 which are part of the navy cluster infection cases.
Taiwan has reported 6 deaths so far, and a total of 203 of the COVID-19 patients in the country have already been released from quarantine, Chen said.
Meanwhile, the CECC has tracked down 255 contacts of the 24 navy cluster infections, with 177 put under quarantine, 28 asked to practice self-health management, and the rest being tested for infections.
As some of the infected had been to 90 or so locations (https://bit.ly/2xyUgs3) after disembarking from the ship, the CECC calls on the public who had been to those areas to practice self-health management, wear face masks when heading outside, and to call 1922 should symptoms appear.
