Taiwan reports only 1 new coronavirus case for 3rd day in a row, bringing total to 428

Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Friday (April 24) announced that there was only one new case of COVID-19 today, bringing the total from the "Goodwill Fleet" to 30, and 428 overall.

Minister of Health and Welfare Chen Shih-chung said, there was one new case from Taiwan's ill-fated "Goodwill Fleet" for the third day in a row. The latest confirmed case, No. 428, is a male in his 30s who served as a sailor on the navy supply ship in the Panshih.

He was placed in a quarantine center on April 18 where he underwent a test for the virus that came back negative, on April 19. He began to experience tell-tale symptoms including a loss of the sense of smell, runny nose, and nasal congestion. He underwent a second test on April 23 and was confirmed to have COVID-19 on April 24.

The center will continue to trace the activities of the infected sailors in public places after disembarking from their ships and publish them on the internet. Chen reminded the public that if they had been to the same places at the same time as the confirmed cases, they should undergo self-health management for the next 14 days and to wear a mask when going out.
