Taipei, Nov. 22 (CNA) Taiwan on Monday reported three new cases of COVID-19, all contracted overseas, and no new deaths from the disease, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The new cases were one Taiwanese and two foreign nationals who traveled to Taiwan from Malaysia and Indonesia, the CECC said.

Two of the cases have been classified as breakthrough infections because the two people involved tested positive for COVID-19 more than 14 days after being fully vaccinated against the disease.

They were confirmed as having caught the disease before the end of their mandatory 14-day quarantine in Taiwan, it said.

To date, Taiwan has confirmed a total of 16,532 COVID-19 cases, of which 14,426 were domestic infections reported since May 15, when the country first recorded more than 100 cases in a single day.

Between Nov. 1 and Nov. 22, Taiwan reported one domestic COVID-19 case -- on Nov. 4 -- and 119 imported cases.

With no new deaths reported Monday, the number of confirmed COVID-19 fatalities in the country remains at 848, with all but 12 recorded since May 15.
