TAIPEI, March 27 (Xinhua) -- The total number of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in Taiwan has increased by 15 to 267, the island's epidemic monitoring agency said Friday.

All of the new patients, nine men and six women, were believed to have contracted the virus during their trips overseas, including trips to Britain and the United States, the agency said in a press release.

Among the island's confirmed COVID-19 cases, 227 were imported. Thirty of the confirmed patients have recovered, and two died of the disease. The rest are in stable condition.

The agency also warned that the public should strictly follow the rules of quarantine at home or they might face the maximum fine of 1 million new Taiwan dollars (about 33,100 U.S. dollars) and will be sent to a designated location for quarantine. Enditem
