The National Health Commission announced all COVID-19 patients in Wuhan have been discharged from the hospital and there were no new confirmed or asymptomatic cases reported in Hubei Province for the first time on Sunday. 

China will also further strengthen border control measures and require 14 days of quarantine for all people entering from abroad, the comission said.
