A traditional herbal formula developed in Taiwan, known as Taiwan Chingguan Yihau (清冠一號), or NRICM101, is an effective treatment against COVID-19, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) doctors said on Friday.
Huang Yi-chia (黃怡嘉), a TCM practitioner from Tri-Service General Hospital, said that her hospital has prescribed NRICM101 to more than 200 COVID-19 patients since it obtained emergency use authorization in Taiwan in May 2020.
The patients, aged three to 100, showed significant improvement after 10 days of treatment, she told a news conference.
The medicine has also helped hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 patients abroad with no side effects reported, she said, without providing details.
