The Novel Coronavirus death toll in China rose to 3,213 with 14 new fatalities, while the imported cases climbed to 123 after 12 new infections were reported, prompting Beijing to make 14-day quarantine in special facilities compulsory for foreigners returning to the country.

As of Sunday, 14 new deaths were reported, taking the death toll due to the deadly virus to 3,213, China's National Health Commission (NHC) said today.

Beijing's local government has announced to send all international arrivals including foreigners into the city to designated quarantine facilities from today as part of stepped-up measures against COVID-19 cases from abroad.

In Hubei province, the epicenter of the virus saw no new confirmed COVID-19 cases for 11 consecutive days in its 16 cities and capital Wuhan too has seen a single-digit daily increase for five days, indicating that the virus is stabilizing now.

Wuhan Municipal Health Commission Deputy Head Zheng Yun said, although the city has seen a single-digit daily increase of new infections, there is still a certain risk of infection in communities based on epidemiological investigation and analysis as well as the law of infectious disease transmission.
