China's National Health Commission reported 78 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, among which 74 were imported.

As of Sunday, the total number of cases in mainland China stood at 81,093.

The 74 imported cases were the most since officials started reporting the data at the beginning of March, and the number was almost double that reported Monday.

Wuhan still has 4,200 people in the hospital due to COVID-19.

Last week, Wuhan authorities closed two temporary hospitals that had been built in a matter of days in early February, creating 2,000 beds for the then-exploding numbers of new cases.

Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities have ordered mandatory 14-day quarantines for all returnees, mainly in hotels and other government-designated locations where those staying must pay their own way.

To meet home-quarantine requirements in Beijing, only one person per room was allowed, otherwise people returning will have to be centrally quarantined in government appointed facilities, Chen said.

Coronavirus epicenter Wuhan, China, is slowly lifting restrictions related to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

We're hoping that this time the coronavirus recommendations stick with people-at least for the DeVito's sake. According to experts, people over 60 and those who are immunocompromised continue to be the most at risk.

The latest report brought the number of total confirmed cases in the hard-hit province to 67,801 and total deaths to 3,163.

Of the 427 confirmed imported cases reported on March 23, 380 are Chinese and the rest 47 are foreign nationals.

As of midnight, outbound travel will resume for Hubei province, except Wuhan city, where restrictions will lift on April 8, announced the local health commission.

Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, has been on complete lockdown. While speaking at the State Department Wednesday, he noted that the Group of Seven is fully aware of China's failure to prevent spread of the virus.

The meeting, however, warned that the risks for sporadic infections and localised outbreaks have not gone away.

China on Tuesday made a decision to lift the three-month lockdown on more than 56 million people in the central Hubei province.

"They should continue to treat the severe cases, promptly admit new cases, and advance epidemiological investigations", the meeting said.

The pandemic situation in the cities concerned in the second operation has eased now, said Nip, adding the health condition of the passengers will be repeatedly checked before boarding, and they will undergo 14-day home quarantine after their arrival in Hong Kong.
