The money will be used to subsidize projects aimed at monitoring cases of H7N9 infection, influenza-like illnesses, severe acute respiratory infection and unexplained pneumonia, the ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

In another move, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security has ordered authorities to allow medical insurance programmes to cover more medicine and services for H7N9-infected patients to reduce the financial burden on them.
