Taipei, Jan. 26 (CNA) Taiwan reported one new imported case of COVID-19 on Tuesday, a Taiwanese national who arrived from Mexico on Jan. 24, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The Taiwanese man, who went to Mexico for work purposes in November 2020, developed a sore throat and a cough on Jan. 3 and tested positive on Jan. 6 while he was there, the CECC said.

In the period Jan. 7-23, he was hospitalized and subsequently quarantined at a hotel in Mexico, the CECC said in a news release.

The man returned to Taiwan on a medical charter flight Sunday and was transferred immediately to a negative pressure hospital room and tested again for COVID-19, according to the CECC.

While the test came back positive Tuesday, there was no need for contact tracing, as all medical workers and individuals known to have had contact with him were wearing personal protective equipment, the center said.

Meanwhile, 3,262 individuals linked to a cluster of 15 domestic cases of COVID-19 in Taoyuan are now in home quarantine, up from 2,991 on Monday, the CECC said. No new cases were reported Tuesday in the cluster, which started in mid-January at Taoyuan General Hospital, according to the CECC.

As of Tuesday, Taiwan had recorded 890 cases of COVID-19, 780 of which had been classified as imported. Of the total number of patients, 797 have recovered, 86 remain in the hospital and seven have died, CECC data shows.

Since the onset of the pandemic, COVID-19 has infected about 99.62 million people in 193 countries and regions worldwide, with more than 2.14 million fatalities, according to CECC statistics as of Tuesday.
