BEIJING:Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been widely used to treat Covid-19 (coronavirus) patients, yielding good outcomes, said a medical expert on Saturday (Feb 28).

With TCM treatment, patients with mild symptoms have seen their fever or cough alleviated, Wang Rongbing, director physician with Beijing Ditan Hospital, said at a press conference.

For severely ill patients, TCM helped relieve symptoms and restore blood oxygen saturation, preventing the patients' conditions from developing into critically ill cases, Wang said, as the number of cases in China has been going down.
