A TCM treatment has presented significant effect in relieving the symptoms of 50 pneumonia patients diagnosed with the coronavirus at the Guangzhou No. 8 People’s Hospital.
Week-long clinical observations have shown the treatment to have effectively relieved or eliminated the symptoms in over half of the patients, including fever, cough, sore throat and fatigue.
Experts believe the treatment is of significant clinical importance and call for more clinical trials.
The Guangdong Food and Drug Administration has initiated an emergency approval for the registration and preparation of the TCM prescription.
