Japan reported 76 new cases of the virus, hiking up the countrywide total to 414 cases.

TCM has been used in treating 60,107 confirmed cases in China, or 85.2 percent of the total.

Meanwhile the first group of USA citizens onboard the coronavirus-stricken Diamond Princess cruise ship have been allowed to leave.

- Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been proven effective in curing COVID-19 patients, a Chinese health official said Monday.

The island also confirmed two new cases, raising its total to 20.

The State Department said it made the call to return the infected patients to the United States following consultations with health officials. They are swapping one quarantine for another, however, with U.S. authorities saying Saturday that on their return stateside, the passengers will have to undergo another two-weeks of observation and testing at one of two military bases.

Earlier, Japans' Ministry of Defense said via Twitter it helped escort some 340 USA nationals and their luggage on 14 buses from the Diamond Princess to Tokyo International Airport.

Coronavirus Outbreak LIVE updates: A month after they were evacuated from coronavirus-hit Wuhan, a batch of about 200 people, who were among over 400 quarantined at an ITBP facility in Delhi were discharged on Monday. The plane will bring citizens to Canadian Forces Base Trenton, and then to NAV Canada Training Institute in Cornwall, Ontario where they will have to undergo another 14-day quarantine.

"We are fully confident we will soon overcome the current difficulties and we will be able to embrace one another once again".

He said he was "very frustrated" about having to impose a second quarantine measure, "but our first responsibility.is to protect the health and safety of Australians here in Australia".

He said "given the misinformation about the novel coronavirus epidemic, World Health Organization has communicated with some companies including Google to ensure that the public will get the authoritative information from the WHO".

Hubei and its capital Wuhan have become the epicentre of the virus and most of the fatalities in China have been reported from the province.

"We are preparing Diamond Princess to return to service April 29, 2020 for the start of Japan's annual Golden Week celebrations", the company said in a statement released Saturday night.

Worries about its spread remain high and the epidemic's reach was highlighted by the U.S. announcing that more than three dozen Americans from a cruise ship quarantined off Japan were infected.

Meanwhile, Japan's fifth government charted flight landed in Wuhan early Monday, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK News.

Health screening is to be stepped up, with officials going door-to-door to look for new cases.
