Taipei, Sept. 20 (CNA) Taiwan reported six new COVID-19 cases -- two transmitted domestically and four contracted overseas -- and no deaths from the disease on Monday, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The two domestic cases were both in Taipei and involved a female patient in her 20s and a one-year child, who has a family member that tested positive for COVID-19 recently, the CECC said.

The four imported cases were two Taiwanese and two foreign nationals who recently arrived from Cambodia, Indonesia and the United States, the CECC said.

The six new cases bring the total in Taiwan to 16,147, of which 14,414 are domestic infections reported since May 15, when the country first recorded more than 100 COVID-19 cases in a single day.

No new deaths from the disease were recorded Monday, the CECC said.

To date, 840 people have died of COVID-19 in Taiwan, with 828 fatalities having occurred since May 15.
