    Two cases added to preschool cluster for 32 total (2021/09/14)

    Two new COVID cases have been added to New Taipei’s preschool cluster, taking the total to 32. They are a 5-year-old girl and her father. The CECC also released the lab tests of an infected construction worker and his wife, who were suspected of being connected to the cluster. Officials confirmed that their viral sequence matched the one of the preschool outbreak.

    The interior construction worker, Case 16,168, and his wife, Case 16,171, were sampled for genomic sequencing. The results came back this morning. They were compared with the virus behind the preschool cluster and other previous delta cases. Our findings were that their viral sequence is a complete match with the preschool cluster strain, so we believe that they are part of the same outbreak. I want to emphasize once more that this preschool cluster involves a viral sequence that’s different from what we saw in all previous imported and local cases, including the delta cases in Pingtung’s outbreak and Taoyuan’s pilot cluster. This is the first time this sequence has been detected in Taiwan.

    In related news, Taiwan’s premier said he’s asked the CECC to restore Taiwan to normal life, provided that the epidemic stays under control. The CECC announced that it’s considering relaxing restrictions on Sept. 21, and that no new restrictions will be imposed.
