Taiwan reported eight new COVID-19 cases, all but one of them contracted overseas, and no deaths from the disease on Friday, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).
The only domestic case involved a woman in her 20s in New Taipei, who took a test required for her work on Wednesday, and the results came back positive, according to the CECC.
The seven new imported cases included four Taiwanese nationals who returned home from Belize, the United Kingdom, the United States and Japan between Sept. 11 and Sept. 22, the CECC said.
The other three were Philippine crew members who developed symptoms on Monday and Tuesday before their ship docked at a port in Taiwan on Wednesday, when they were tested positive and sent to a hospital, according to the CECC.
