Taiwan has reported two new imported cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number to 718.

The spokesman for the Central Epidemic Command Center, Chuang Jen-hsiang, said one case involves an Indonesian migrant worker in her 20s. She arrived in Taiwan on November 23, with a negative test result taken three days prior to boarding. While she has since developed no symptoms, the test taken Monday came back positive Tuesday.

Another case involves a Taiwanese man in his 50s who went to China in mid-September. He returned to Taiwan on November 22 with no symptoms at all, and with a negative test result. However, he had fever and felt cold while in quarantine and the test came back positive Tuesday.

The man is the first imported case from China since February 6.
