English term or phrase:share (bear)
The 60 patients newly added will be treated and observed in China. As to the issue of the number of cases each clinical center should share (bear), the issue of whether new clinical center should be added etc. should be decided after we have consulted with the main researchers of each clinical center.
Explanation: If this is a clinical study, I would say “the number of patients to be enrolled at each clinical centre”. “Enrolled” refers to enrolment in the clinical study.
Also, in a clinical study/trial the “main researchers” in each study centre are called “principal investigators”.
As to the issue of the number of cases each clinical center should share (bear), the issue of whether new clinical center should be added etc.,they should be decided after we have consulted with the main researchers of each clinical center.

handle, take up, etc.
Explanation: Both share and bear seem awkward here, from the point of view of English flow.
I would use a word like "handle" or "take up".
"Share" can be justified if some patients are treated in more than one clinic and in this sense the expense of their treatment is shared between these clinic.
For example, some high-fi equipment may be available only at some select clinics and all the patients requiring the use of that equipment are taken there, while these patients undergo treatment for those problems not requiring the equipment in other clinics.
