BEIJING (Reuters) - China reported on Saturday a rise in new coronavirus cases, as authorities try to head off a second wave of infections, particularly from imported and asymptomatic cases, as curbs on cities and travel are lifted.

The National Health Commission said 46 new cases were reported on Friday, including 42 involving travellers from abroad, up from 42 cases a day earlier.

In its statement the commission added that 34 new asymptomatic cases were reported, down from 47 the previous day.

Mainland China's tally of infections now stands at 81,953. The death toll rose by three to 3,339.

Tough curbs imposed since January helped rein in infections sharply from the height of the pandemic in February. But policymakers fear a second wave triggered by arrivals from overseas or asymptomatic patients.

Northeastern Heilongjiang recently reported a spike in new cases because of Chinese nationals entering the province from Russia, which has seen a surge of cases.

Provincial health officials said it had 22 new imported cases on Friday, all Chinese nationals coming from Russia, and one new local case, in its capital of Harbin.

Inner Mongolia had a daily tally of 27 new imported cases by Saturday morning, all from Russia, the region's health authority said.

The central province of Hubei, where the virus emerged late last year, reported no new cases for a seventh successive day.

A rise in virus infections has prompted authorities in Guangzhou to step up scrutiny of foreigners, ordering bars and restaurants not to serve clients who appear to be of African origin, the U.S. consulate in the southern city said.

Anyone with "African contacts" faces mandatory virus tests followed by quarantine, regardless of recent travel history or previous isolation, it said in a statement.

It advised African-Americans or those who feel they might be suspected of contact with nationals of African origin to avoid the city.

Since the epidemic broke out in the provincial capital of Wuhan, it has spread around the world, infecting 1.6 million people and killing more than 100,000.

this just means... US is going to have a very hard time going back to norm. this virus will stick around us for a very long because we don't have the same great system as China in quarantine. China has set the best examples by far. The WHO, Bill Gates, UN, etc thinks China did a great job. Plus China is so great, we don't see them go around blaming anyone, but what we see is a China that is striving to help others get back to normal.

I speak for the majority of Americans. It is just a small number of you haters that is trying to say otherwise. Majority of Americans would happily stand up and say thanks to China for helping us in this pandemic by sending us supplies and medical data. You small numbers are a disgrace to the real americans like me.

David, while China has helped by sending medical supplies to other countries, including USA, it's incorrect to say that they have not been blaming others. It's quite well known now that the Chinese government has been putting out false rumours about US military purposely bringing the virus to Wuhan. And this article describes a clear practice of bias against black people now, regardless of whether they're showing any symptoms or not.
