S. Korea's third chartered flight to Wuhan brings back 147 S. Koreans, their Chinese family members Updated: 2020-02-12 10:04:32 KST

We start with latest on the coronavirus outbreak.
South Korea's third chartered flight from the virus-hit Chinese city of Wuhan landed at Gimpo International Airport this morning.
For more, we have our Eum Ji-young on the line for us.
Ji-young, we hear the flight arrived back just a few hours ago

Yes, Jiyoon, the plane landed at around 6:20 AM, Korea time.
It brought back 1-hundred-47 people, and for the first time, it includes around 60 Chinese nationals who're the immediate family members of the South Koreans.
Among those, there are reportedly five people that show symptoms of the virus.
Those five and their 2 children were moved to the National Medical Center in Seoul.
Those who didn't show any symptoms have arrived at the Korea Defense Language Institute in Icheon City, Gyeonggi-do Province to be isolated for 14 days.

Ok, it's good to hear they are back safe. More good news is that South Korea reported no new coronavirus cases so far today.

That's right. The total confirmed cases is still at 28.
On Tuesday, South Korea reported its 28th confirmed case of the novel coronavirus from a 30 year-old Chinese woman.
The woman was already under self-quarantine when she was tested positive for the virus, and is now at Myongji hospital in Gyeonggi-do Province.
Also, a 54 year-old Korean man who is currently being treated at Myongji hospital, is expected to be discharged today.
As of this morning, four out of 28 confirmed coronavirus cases in South Korea have fully recovered and have been discharged from hospital.
Meanwhile, everyone flying into South Korea from Hong Kong and Macau will undergo strict quarantine screening starting today.
That's all I have for now but there will be more updates in the later newscast. Back to you.
