China is willing to collaborate with other countries to tap the potential of traditional Chinese medicine in fighting the novel coronavirus and offer assistance on that front, Yu Yanhong, a top official with the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said on Monday.
China has made public its COVID-19 treatment plans -- which contain the TCM approaches -- on its official website and made it available in English. The plans were drafted in a short time based on tens of thousands of coronavirus cases and proved to be effective in practice, and thus "valuable", she said at a news conference in Wuhan, Central China’s Hubei province, that was hit hard by the epidemic.
China also has donated TCM products, ranging from Chinese patent medicines to acupuncture utensils, to countries and regions, including Italy and France, she said.
TCM experts have arrived in Italy and Cambodia to assist local treatment and the effects are good, she added.2020-03-24
