Case 1056 is an Indonesian fisherman in his 20s. He came to work in Taiwan on March 26 and submitted a negative test report within 3 days prior to boarding the plane, the CECC said.

After entering Taiwan, he went to the centralized quarantine office for quarantine and was tested before his confinement expired on April 8. He was diagnosed positive earlier today.

The case was asymptomatic during entry; he had no contact with others during quarantine, so no contacts were listed, the CECC added.
