Taipei, Jan. 13 (CNA) Taiwan on Thursday confirmed 14 new domestic cases of COVID-19, as well as 51 imported cases and one death from the disease, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).
The 14 domestic cases include 11 reported Wednesday evening and Thursday morning by the CECC and Taoyuan City government. All but one of the cases -- a nurse in Taipei City Hospital's Renai Branch -- are linked to an outbreak of COVID-19 originating at Taoyuan International Airport.
Eleven of the new domestic cases have been classified as breakthrough cases of COVID-19, while a woman in her 20s and a boy under 10 years old had not been vaccinated against the disease. The vaccination status of one case is still being determined.
In addition to the domestic cases, Taiwan also reported 51 imported cases on Thursday. The CECC did not release any information regarding the vaccination status of the imported cases.
The sole death reported Thursday is a Taiwanese man in his 50s who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in December last year. He passed away on Jan. 9, the CECC said.
To date, Taiwan has confirmed 17,624 COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began in early 2020, of which 14,665 are domestic infections.
