Virus Outbreak: American man confirmed as Taiwan’s 50th virus caseBy Lin Chia-nan / Staff reporterAn American man was yesterday confirmed as Taiwan’s 50th COVID-19 case, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said, adding that it would consider placing certain US states on the nation’s travel advisory list. However, due to the size of the US, the center would issue the advisories at the state or regional level, he added. Taiwan’s newest case is an American office worker in his 50s who lives in central Taiwan and might have contracted the disease after hosting two American couples on Feb. 24, Chen said. One member of the other couple also exhibited respiratory symptoms after leaving Taiwan, also on Feb. 26, he added. They remain housed in several quarantine facilities and the CECC would continue to monitor their health, he said.
