Navy sailors among 22 new cases in Taiwan

Agency News

Taiwan's government on Sunday reported 22 new coronavirus cases, 21 of who had been on a Taiwanese navy mission to the Pacific island state of Palau last month.

Speaking at a news conference, Taiwan Health Minister Chen Shih-chung said the cases had so far only been discovered on one of the three ships that had visited Palau, but that further investigations were needed before they could say where exactly the sailors had contracted the virus.

The new cases bring Taiwan's total to 420, six of whom have died.
