More and more people in Taiwan are seeking traditional herbal solutions and relief for COVID-19. The National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine (NRICM) under the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the National Union of Chinese Medical Doctors' Association together launched a regularly updated website on the nationwide stock of herbal COVID-19 formula Chingguan Yihau (NRICM101) at 1391 government-authorized hospitals and clinics. People can search according to cities and counties on the website to see the availability of the formula at a hospital or clinic near them without having to call each place to ask.

Chiu Wen-hui, Deputy Director, National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine: “Patients in need can book an online doctor visit with any of these 1391 hospitals and clinics listed on the website. These hospitals and clinics would upload their remaining stock on the website before midnight each night and all numbers would be updated by 7 a.m. the next day. ”

Legislators would like to remind the public to be aware of the authenticity of the Chingguan Yihau formula that they purchase. Chingguan Yihau formulas that come in tea bags or formulas purchased from unauthorized Chinese herbal medicine shops are not guaranteed by the government safety. It is important to check on the formula package whether the herbs are produced by the eight government-authorized Chinese herbal pharmaceutical companies. People can search for hospitals and clinics with the herbal formula currently available and book online doctor visits to get a doctor's prescription for the formula.

Ko Fu-yang, President, National Union of Chinese Medical Doctors' Association: “Hospitals and clinics in 22 cities and counties are participating with the government in updating formula figures for this website. Numbers get updated every so often on the page so people know where to book online appointments.”

Su I-chang, Director, National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine: “We keep in close communication with the eight Chinese herbal pharmaceutical companies to make sure that it is within their capacity to produce enough herbs for a 5-day prescription for about 150,000 patients each month. Everyone is putting in a lot of effort on production so it seems like we can push the provision up to 200,000 or even 300,000 patients each month.”

President of the National Union of Chinese Medical Doctors' Association Ko Fu-yang said that about 16,000 patients need Chingguan Yihau daily in Taiwan. All eight authorized Chinese herbal pharmaceutical companies are working at full force to provide enough medication for everyone. Many of these companies say straight out that they are rejecting overseas orders for now to focus on providing for Taiwan first.  

 

 

 

本土疫情大爆發,也讓公費清冠一號需求大增,衛福部國家中醫藥研究所與中醫師公會全國聯合會,設計「公費清冠一號動態查詢表」,能看到1391家中醫院所的清冠一號庫存資訊,民眾按照所在縣市點選,不必再一家家尋找清冠一號,降低撲空機率。

衛福部國家中醫藥研究所副所長邱文慧說明:「參與視訊醫療的1391家的醫療院所,每一天晚上的12點以前,把他們可以供應給公費視訊醫療取用清冠一號的人次,還有數量登記在這個表單上面,那這個表單在隔日的清晨七點都會做一個即時的更新。」

立委也提醒民眾,清冠一號茶包不是清冠一號,類清冠也不是,務必認明8家授權藥廠,才能避免買到假貨。公費清冠一號動態雙向表單,由中醫院所填寫清冠一號庫存,提供民眾上網查詢,透過視訊問診,快速取得清冠一號。

中華民國中醫師公會全國聯合會理事長柯富揚表示:「動員了全國22個縣市,那我們目前也完成了各位所看到這個表單,他是一個滾動式的一個表單,可以透過這樣一個表單,知道說在哪些地方還有清冠一號,可以打電話透過視訊診療取得清冠一號。」

衛福部國家中醫藥研究所所長蘇奕彰指出:「我們私底下也跟8家藥廠確認過大家原來的產能,一個月大概是在15萬人次的5天療程的一個治療的內容,那在這一段時間大家加緊努力之下,看起來數字是可以往上提高到20、30萬左右。」

中華民國中醫師公會全國聯合會柯富揚進一步表示,現在每天約有1萬6千人需要清冠一號,八大授權藥廠也產能全開,日夜趕工,為了補足用藥缺口,多家授權藥廠也直言,婉拒國外訂單,就是為了把藥留在台灣。
