Taipei, Feb. 19 (CNA) Taiwan reported one more confirmed case of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) Wednesday, bringing the number to 23 since the outbreak began, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said.
Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中), who heads the CECC, told reporters that the latest case is the 60-year-old younger sister of the 19th confirmed case -- a 61-year-old male who made his living in central Taiwan as a limousine service driver and on Sunday became the first person in the country to die of the infection.
The latest patient is suspected of having been infected with the virus during a family gathering attended by the driver on Jan. 27, the CECC said.
