Since ancient times, China has been known for its innovative methods of treating diseases, until what is known as "Chinese medicine" has become an integrated branch of science used by millions of patients worldwide.
In the face of the emerging " Corona" virus, Beijing has begun testing a 3,000-year-old conventional treatment for people with the deadly disease, according to Bloomberg, a senior health official.
According to the chairman of the National Health Commission of China in Hubei Province, a stronghold of the Corona virus, hospitals in the province now use a mix of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine recipes to treat those infected by the virus.
On the results of the use of these prescriptions, the official said at a news conference Saturday, "The prescriptions showed some good results," adding, "I am sending leading specialists in traditional Chinese medicine to Hubei to participate in the research and treatment.
Scientists are continuing their research in the hope of finding a cure for the Coronavirus, which registered new cases on the Chinese mainland in 2009, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 68,500, the country's National Health Commission announced Sunday.
