TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – All tour groups from the coronavirus-stricken Chinese province of Hubei have left Taiwan, while other Chinese groups should return home by the end of the month, the Tourism Bureau said Monday (Jan. 27).

The last two groups of tourists visiting from Hubei, totaling 37 people, had left Taiwan Monday, CNA quoted a news release from the Tourism Bureau as saying.

The demand for their departure had been issued last Jan. 24 as the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) had been expanding in China and reaching Taiwan. So far, the island has recorded five cases, while in China, the official number has exceeded 2,000, with 80 deaths announced.    [FULL  STORY]
