3 New reported cases of COVID-19 dissapointed the citizens in Taiwan

New three imported cases were announced on Saturday (May 2), giving a total of 432 infected patients.

Taiwan recorded its sixth consecutive day, the previous day, without new cases. It caused to raise expectations that the government would soon decrease their preventive measures.

Even though the streak has ended, the country achieved 20 days without local transmissions, while the count of death toll remained at 6. 324 patients have been released from isolation after being treated at hospitals.

Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said at its daily news conference that the 430th case traveled to Australia in February before flying to Japan in March. The person began showing symptoms on April 9, but still came to Taiwan on April 30.

The two new cases were a couple. They traveled to Senegal for work on February 11. They reported their conditions to the authorities before returning to Taiwan as they already felt unwell on April 26. They arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport early Friday (May 1).
