Corona Virus- Chinese medicine treatment plan
This is a translation of the diagnosis and treatment protocol for novel Corona Virus Pneumonia (新型冠状病毒肺炎诊疗方案).
It was released on March 3 2020 by the General Office of National Health Commission Office of State TCM Administration <Guideline on diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 (Trial 7th)>.
This is not the full report. I have translated the section of the clinical treatment work plan suggested in the 7th version of the Chinese National Health Commission.

Since December 2019 many cases of Corona virus pneumonia have been identified in Wuhan city Hubei Province. Nowadays the virus has spread all over the world and many countries including Israel are in a state of quarantine and home isolation due to the fast spread of the virus. There are some reports from China about the great contribution of Chinese herbal medicine when integrating it with western medicine. I don’t know if this integration will be possible in the west but for those of you who might look for an English translation to apply it in your healthcare clinics I have decided to translate these suggestions.
Please note that I don’t consider myself as a professional Chinese translator nor my mother tongue is English but I did my best. The clinical differentiation part and herbal formulas are well understood and reflect the meaning of this report.
