TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Sunday (Nov. 21) announced zero new local cases of COVID-19, nine imported ones, and no deaths.

The imported cases include four males and five females. They arrived in Taiwan between Oct. 29 and Nov. 19 from Denmark, Indonesia, the U.S., Kenya, Singapore, Cambodia, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.

The recent trend has been for imported cases to outnumber local cases to a large degree.
