COVID-19 (07/08): Taiwan reports 30,314 local cases, 131 deaths

Taiwan reported 30,314 new local cases of COVID-19 on Friday.

If you take into account the population of each area of Taiwan, Penghu County is a hotspot for the virus. One hundred and ninety-four people have new cases of COVID there, among a population of just 105,000. Taitung County is also dealing with a high number of infections, as is Hualien County.

Another 131 people have died from COVID-19. Most were suffering from chronic illnesses. Less than half of them had taken three doses of a COVID vaccine.

Authorities say another 311 people are suffering from moderate or severe symptoms of the disease.

Taiwan also recorded 163 imported cases of COVID-19 on Friday.
