Doctor’s experience in using traditional Chinese medicine in COVID-19 control has been shared overseas, said three Chinese academicians in Wuhan on Friday.

“There are several scientific research institutions in South Korea, Japan, and Italy have sent a request to us, hoping that we can share our experience of using Chinese medicine in epidemic control. TCM practitioners are particularly willing to share research results with each other,” said Zhang Boli, president of the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

“I had contact with South Korea. They hope to learn from the experience of TCM in preventing and treating COVID-19, and to develop their own prescription,” said Huang Luqi, president of the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

“About 10 days ago, I connected Iran and Italy through the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societie to know how it was going there. I have shared the prescriptions used in Wuhan to many doctors in many countries,” said Tong Xiaolin, chief researcher of the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
