Taipei, Nov. 20 (CNA) Taiwan reported on Saturday four new cases of COVID-19, all contracted overseas, and no new deaths from the disease, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The cases involved two Taiwanese and two foreign nationals who had arrived from Indonesia and Myanmar, the CECC said.
