Taipei, Aug. 2 (CNA) Taiwan on Monday reported 14 new cases of COVID-19 -- 12 transmitted domestically and two contracted overseas -- and zero deaths from the disease, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

Of the domestic cases, five were reported in Taoyuan, three in New Taipei, two in Taipei, and one each in Keelung and Kaohsiung cities, the CECC said.

The two imported cases were Taiwanese who recently returned from abroad, one man in his 60s who came back from Thailand on July 18, and one woman in her 30s who returned from the United States on July 30, according to the CECC.

The new COVID-19 cases bring the total in Taiwan to 15,702, of which 14,214 are domestic infections reported since May 15, when the country first recorded more than 100 cases in a single day.

To date, 789 people have died of COVID-19 in Taiwan, including 777 since May 15.
