Taitung, 1st county to report zero COVID-19 cases in Taiwan, no quarantined either

Taitung, Taiwan on Monday (April 27), became the first county in Taiwan to have no records of COVID-19 confirmed cases or infected people since the outbreak began.

Taitung is one of the few to have reported zero cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic started. Due to the wave of Taiwanese workers and students returning from countries hit hard by the virus over the past couple months, the county at one point saw a peak of 11 persons undergoing home isolation, over 100 enduring home quarantine, and hundreds more implementing self-health monitoring, reported UDN.

Fortunately, the last Taitung resident completed their home isolation at midnight on Monday morning, asserted UDN. Because the person showed no symptoms and the test results were found to be negative for the disease, the person was officially released from isolation.

Taiwan overall has reported no new local cases for two weeks but has seen over 30 imported cases during that period, primarily from the "Goodwill Fleet."
