Taiwan authorities said a 61-year-old man who had never been to China died after contracting the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The man had diabetes and had had hepatitis B: he died after two weeks in the hospital. The Taiwanese authorities are trying to reconstruct how he came into contact with the virus, having never left Taiwan: since the man worked as a taxi driver, they speculate that one of his passengers may have infected him. A relative of his, a man in his fifties who lived in the same house, was also affected.
So far, 20 new coronavirus cases have been recorded in Taiwan, and strict restrictions have been imposed on travel to and from China to prevent further infection.
