Employing a treatment protocol integrating traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, Keelung Chang Gung Hospital researched 93 COVID-19 patients and discovered that of those receiving the integrated treatment, the mortality rate is 15 percent, while the recovery rate is up to 84 percent. In addition, not only Chingguan Yihau but also the Chinese medicine astragalus compound YQ1 can also enhance the anti-viral capability.

Keelung City bore the brunt of the catastrophic outbreak of COVID-19 in May. Residents' infection rate reached 21 percent, being the nation's number one. Keelung Chang Gung Hospital Research Team targeted 93 COVID-19 patients hospitalized from May to July, among which 29 patients were treated with integration of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, while the other 64 were treated with routine western medicine. The results showed that the mortality rate of those who received the integrated treatment was only 15 percent, while the recovery rate was 84 percent. On the other hand, the mortality rate of the other group was 40 percent, and the recovery rate at 60 percent. Not only Chingguan Yihau but the Chinese medicine astragalus compound YQ1 can also raise anti-viral capability.

Huang Tsu-hung, Doctor, Dept. of Chinese Medicine, Keelung Chang Gung Hospital: “Astragalus (huangqi) helps with invigorating and nourishing blood, so it actually compensates for side effects from these other clearing heat and detox medicine. And huangqi itself also provides proper adjustment to the immune system.”

Moreover, according to the National Health Insurance Administration, in the first half of the year, those infected who were treated in hospitals within half a year of infection exceeded 4.51 million people, and most exhibit respiratory symptoms. Experts estimate that at least 500,000 people domestically would develop Long-COVID.

Doctor note that Long-COVID exhibits quite diverse symptoms. If symptoms develop and persist for two months after three months of infection and are not diagnosed with any other known illnesses or disorders, then it is deemed Long-COVID. It is recommended that such recovered patients may go get checked in hospitals to obtain the correct medication and treatment, alleviating after effects of Long-COVID.
