We start with latest on the coronavirus outbreak in South Korea.
Another patient has been let out of quarantine bringing the total number of people who've recovered and been released to five.
And there are two more due to be let out sometime today.
For more, we have our Kan Hyeong-woo on the line for us.
Hyeong-woo, so who's the latest person to be released?

Devin, it's a 54-year old Korean man who was the country's third confirmed case.
After testing negative for the virus twice in a row, he was released from Myongji hospital in Gyeonggi-do Province earlier today.
With the latest discharged case, South Korea's seen five patients fully recover and be let out of medical institutions.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said two more patients are expected to be let go from the hopital later in the day.
They've also made full recoveries.
According to the health authorities, the rest of the confirmed patients are in a stable condition.
And because there have been no more confirmed patients in the country since yesterday, the total number of the coronavirus case is still at twenty eight.

Meanwhile, a third South Korean plane sent to Wuhan to pick people up landed back at Gimpo International Airport this morning bringing back 147 people.
Those include 79 South Korean nationals, and this time their Chinese family members too.
How are they doing, healthwise, and where are they now?

So there were seventy-nine South Korean citizens, sixty-seven Chinese nationals and one U.S. citizen.
It's the first time that the Korean government has brought back the immediate family members of the South Koreans living in Wuhan.
Five of the passengers showed symptoms of the coronavirus upon their arrival eariler this morning.
Those five and their 2 children were sent to the National Medical Center in Seoul for additional medical checkups.
The rest of them who did not show any symptoms went to the Korea Defense Language Institute in the city of Icheon, Gyeonggi-do Province.
They are going to be isolated there for fourteen days.
Meanwhile, the 700 people who were brought back from Wuhan earlier this month and have been isolated at facilities in Asan and Jincheon are getting ready to be discharged from quarantine this weekend.
That's all I have for now. I will be back with the latest in our later newscast.
