A second plane, carrying 185 Canadian evacuees from the coronavirus-stricken Chinese city of Wuhan, has landed at an air-force base in Trenton, Ontario, the Canadian government said on Tuesday.
In Canada, there have been seven cases of the virus: four in British Columbia and three in Ontario.
They would have been taken off the plane and given medical assistance locally.
The United States has now recorded its 13th case of the new coronavirus.
The fatality toll from the new virus has passed the 774 people believed to have died in the 2002-03 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome, another viral outbreak that originated in China.More news: Hubei Adds 4,823 Cases; China Virus Death Toll at 1,483
In a statement Sunday, Canada's chief public health officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said none of the first evacuees from Wuhan who are quarantined at the Canadian Forces Base have exhibited any symptoms of the virus.
Those evacuees are being kept at CFB Trenton for 14 days to make sure they don't get sick and start spreading the germs across the country.
Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau warned the coronavirus will have a "significant impact" on Canada's economy because of China's powerful influence on economies.
Although they were initially told that Xiao would not be allowed to board the second flight back to Canada, the Canadian authorities later said she would be permitted on the plane.
The illness has also resulted in 1,018 deaths as of February 11, according to the World Health Organization.More news: Coronavirus: 'Pariah' cruise ship rejected by five ports docks at last
The crews and medical staff did not spend time in Wuhan, followed appropriate infection protocols, including the use of personal protective equipment, and did not have unprotected contact with the passengers who were flown to Canada, Tam said.
The first Canadian charter carried out 174 Canadians and their family members, who are now under quarantine at a military base in Trenton, Ont., for two weeks. "The risk to Canadians remains low", the group reported.
"I wanted to make sure that we're all linked up", he said.
There are seven Canadians with confirmed cases of the coronavirus contracted aboard one of the ships, which is docked in the port city of Yokohama, just outside Tokyo.
"The government is pleased to have welcomed home more than 400 Canadians and their family members who had been in the quarantined region of Hubei province", Champagne said in the release.More news: Amazon wins suspension of $10 bn 'JEDI' contract to Microsoft
