Taiwan reported 21,761 new local cases of COVID-19 on Friday.
If you take into account the population of each area of Taiwan, the Penghu Islands are a hotspot for the virus. More than 200 people have new cases of COVID there in a population of just over 100,000. Miaoli County is also dealing with a high number of infections, as is Kinmen.
Another 31 people have died from COVID-19. Most were over the age of 80, and only about a quarter had taken three doses of a COVID vaccine.
Authorities say another 89 people are suffering from moderate or severe symptoms of the disease.
Taiwan also recorded 228 imported cases of COVID-19 on Friday.
