Taiwan on Tuesday confirmed the 11th case of novel coronavirus infection.

The patient is one of the 247 Taiwan residents who returned Monday from Hubei Province, where the novel coronavirus epidemic has hit hard, the island's epidemic monitoring agency said at a press conference.

Upon their arrival by a chartered plane, one of the travelers, who had a fever, and two others, who had throat irritation, were considered suspected cases and placed in isolation wards while the rest were sent to three different locations for quarantine, the agency said.

Of the three placed in isolation, one was confirmed to be infected by the virus, the agency said.
