As the COVID-19 spreads to over 190 countries, it is important to understand how it has been treated in China. In mild to moderate cases herbal formulas were given and in severe cases integrated medicine was used by combining Chinese medicine and western medicine.


These formulas are listed according to the Jing Fang classical approach of Hu Xi shu mostly used by Dr. Tong Xiao lin (TXL) who usually practices at the Guang An Men Chinese Medicine Hospital in Beijing. Some other formulas are recommended by Dr. Zhang Yue feng (ZXF). They both have clinical experience treating infected patients with efficient results.

There have been many different clinical tests on various formulas used for treating the viral pneumonia in the last 2 months. On February 5th Qing Fei Pai Du Tang was given to 214 infected patients with mild to severe symptoms taken for 3 days of observation. There was improvement in 90% of the patients, where 60% showed significant improvement and 30% were stable without aggravation. This is a 10% significant difference from the 80% of the infected patients with mild to moderate symptoms.
