Taipei, Nov. 28 (CNA) Taiwan reported 10 new imported cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths from the disease on Sunday, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The new cases involved three Taiwanese and seven foreign nationals in their teens, 20s, and 30s who were entering Taiwan after being in the United States, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates. They arrived in Taiwan between Nov. 25 and Nov. 26, the CECC said.

Upon their arrival, they all provided a negative COVID-19 test result from within three days prior to boarding their flight, it said.

The CECC said three of the 10 cases involved people who were fully vaccinated with the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine and were therefore classified as breakthrough infections.

To date, Taiwan has confirmed a total of 16,588 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.

There have only been 123 domestic cases since Aug. 15, as daily domestic case numbers have fallen to mostly single digits or zero since then. In November, only one domestic case has been reported, on Nov. 4, according to CECC data.

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