Taipei, Dec. 4 (CNA) Taiwan reported 11 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, all contracted overseas, and no new deaths from the disease, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The cases involved five Taiwanese and six foreign nationals aged 1-60, who returned or arrived in the country between Nov. 19 and Dec. 2, according to the CECC.

Eight of the new cases were classified as breakthrough infections, while two Taiwanese nationals were the only ones that had not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19, it said.

While 10 of them were confirmed as having caught the disease before the end of their mandatory 14-day quarantine in Taiwan, the other one was a child under the age of 5 who tested positive when seeking medical attention on Dec. 3.

To date, Taiwan has confirmed a total of 16,648 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, however, as daily domestic case numbers have fallen to mostly single digits or zero since then, according to CECC data. The most recent domestic case was reported on Nov. 4.

With no new deaths reported since Nov. 10, the number of confirmed COVID-19 fatalities in the country remains at 848, with all but 12 recorded since May 15.
