The continuing outbreak of the pandemic overseas has increased the pressure on China to prevent imported cases, said Mi Feng, a spokesperson for the National Health Commission, at a press conference in Beijing.

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