China should remain vigilant and prevent any rebound in the COVID-19 epidemic, Premier Li Keqiang said on Thursday, adding that no cover-up of the coronavirus cases will be allowed.

China has shared information about COVID-19 in a timely way with other countries and calls for greater international cooperation to overcome the pandemic, Li said during his once-a-year news conference following the close of the annual meeting of parliament.

China reported two new confirmed coronavirus cases in the mainland on May 27, up from one a day earlier, the country’s health authority said on Thursday.

Both of the cases were imported from abroad, the National Health Commission said in its daily bulletin.

China also confirmed 23 new asymptomatic coronavirus cases on May 27, compared to 28 the day before.
