Taiwan on Friday confirmed 29 new domestic cases of COVID-19, its highest number of locally transmitted infections in a single day since the outbreak began early last year, as authorities continued to grapple with a string of cluster infections in northern Taiwan.

A total of 16 of the cases are linked to a cluster involving hostess teahouses in Taipei’s Wanhua District; five are associated with a cluster in Luzhou, New Taipei, involving members of the Lions Club International organisation; and one is linked to a games arcade in Yilan County, while the sources of seven have not yet been determined, the Central Epidemic Command centre (CECC) said.
