China reported 16 newly imported cases of coronavirus, the highest in over a week, as domestic cases in the country are dwindling.
The National Health Commission said that five provinces and cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, reported infections with people traveling overseas.
Only four new cases were discovered domestically, all in the capital of Hubei Province, Wuhan, where the virus first appeared in December.
Meanwhile, 111 infections have been imported, with regions outside of Hubei not reporting any new indigenous cases for the third day in a row, raising concerns that China's domestic virus containment measures may be reversed by reintroduced outbreaks.
Another ten people all died in Wuhan, raising the national toll of the disease to mainland China to 3,199.
More than 80,000 people were infected.
Central Hubei was banned in January, placing around 56 million people in quarantine. However, the number of cases has decreased in recent weeks.
The provincial authorities in Hubei loosened restrictions on Saturday that prevented people from freely leaving their homes and villages.
"All (managing authorities) in urban communities and village areas that are classified as low-risk have lifted the closed administration," said Liu Dongru, deputy director of the Hubei Health Commission, on Sunday, referring to a previous policy of blocking access to communities and Municipalities monitoring the movements of residents.
The province announced Tuesday that people could travel to the province in medium and low risk areas.
There is no evidence that people can leave the province, and the measures did not seem to ease the restrictions in Hubei's capital, Wuhan, where the virus first appeared in December.
The Chinese authorities have since stepped up surveillance of international arrivals.
Beijing ordered all international arrivals to go into 14-day quarantine on Wednesday.
All international flights to the capital's secondary Daxing airport have now been rerouted to arrive at the older Beijing Capital airport, where arrivals are checked and monitored, the state-run Xinhua news agency said on Saturday.
The city council said the five imported cases reported in Beijing on Sunday were travelers from Spain, Italy and Thailand.
According to the Shanghai authorities, the three cases imported to Shanghai came from Italy, France and Spain, all Chinese nationals in Europe.
Beijing did not report the nationality of the newly discovered patients, nor did Guangdong Province, where the Philippines had diagnosed arrival. Another seven imported cases were reported in Zhejiang and Gansu provinces.
