Sharing session highlights the role of Chinese medicine in the fight against the COVID-19

The Malaysian Chinese Medical Society of Epidemic Control and Prevention (CMEC) collaborated with 13 Chinese medicine healthcare centres to hold an online sharing session via Zoom on 26 September 2021. The session served as a platform for Chinese medicine experts and patients to share their experiences of using Chinese medicines in combating the COVID-19.

The event was supported by UTAR Department of Chinese Medicine and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine Malaysian Alumni Association (BUCMMAA).

The sharing session was moderated by practitioner Connie Shu Siew Ing, the secretary-general of CMEC. The three invited speakers were Dr Shee Yu Gang from UTAR Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science, Practitioner Wong Chih Kai and Practitioner Tan Pik Munn. With their sharing of knowledge and experiences, participants gained a better understanding of the application of Chinese medicine, particularly how Chinese medicine can play a positive role in different stages of the COVID-19.

The event also saw three participants, who recovered from the COVID-19, sharing their journey of fighting against this infectious disease, including their experiences in using Chinese medicine services and how Chinese medicine can help alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19.
