While the Corona virus continues to die, scientists continue to develop a drug against the virus, but there has not been any development yet. Chinese authorities are now beginning to apply traditional methods of treatment to combat the virus.
The fight against the Corona virus, which has emerged in China, has caused more than 1,700 people to die, according to official figures. Chinese officials began to apply traditional methods of treatment in the fight against the virus.
Doctors in the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak broke out, began to combine traditional Chinese medicine with modern methods of treatment to reduce the rate of people infected with the virus. Other scientists around the world are also trying to develop vaccines to fight the virus.
Fighting the Corona virus:
In two clinical trials, research is on whether HIV and Ebola drugs are effective in treating symptoms. In addition to these drugs, traditional treatment methods with thousands of years of history are also being studied. One of the traditional treatments that has been studied is ‘shuanghuanglian’, which contains Lian Qiao (Golden Dish) extract.
This fruit dry is said to have been used to treat infections 2,000 years ago. About 400 people are involved in these traditional treatment methods. Wang Hesheng, the head of the new health commission of Hubei province, said in an interview with Bloomberg that doctors began to get positive results with traditional treatment methods.
Different studies are also carried out on the fight against the virus. Clinical studies of the antiviral drug Remdesivir, developed by the biotechnology company Gilead Sciences, began earlier this month. In the near future, the first group of patients is expected to start taking this drug.
Clinical drug tests are also ongoing in China. Soumya Swaminathan of the World Health Organization warned of drugs used to treat the disease. “We want scientific approaches to test traditional treatments,” said Swaminathan.
