China has stepped up a campaign to shift blame for the coronavirus pandemic by using fake social media accounts to promote conspiracy theories about the source of the virus, the State Department said, as Beijing increasingly adopts Russian-style disinformation techniques.

All of the 52 new confirmed imported COVID-19 cases reported in the Chinese mainland during the past 14 days entered the country via airports, a health official said on Saturday.

Australia has called for an global investigation into the origins and spread of the virus that emerged in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late past year. US lawmakers wrote to almost 60 countries asking them to support Taiwan's participation in the World Health Organization, a move that likely won't sit well with China.

"We need to expand testing on those entering China to prevent a rebound of the epidemic", he added.

The commission intends to build a "centralised and efficient" chain of command and reform, and modernise the disease prevention and control system, he said.

As many as 17 new cases of Covid-19 were reported from China's Hubei and Jilin province.

Li also underlined the importance of improving the medical insurance and medical aid systems for major diseases and strengthening laws and regulations on public health.

On Friday Beijing said it would support a World Health Organization-led review into the global response to the coronavirus outbreak - once the pandemic is over.

China outraged the United States when a foreign ministry spokesman tweeted a conspiracy that the U.S. military brought the virus to Wuhan, but the two countries reached an informal rhetorical truce in late March after telephone talks between President Donald Trump and his counterpart Xi Jinping.

These were the details of the news China reports one new coronavirus case, 16 asymptomatic cases for this day.
