Traditional remedies only used to complement Covid-19 recovery process

PUTRAJAYA (May 1): The use of herbal remedies and traditional methods recommended by the physicians from China can be used only to complement the recovery process and is not a specific treatment for Covid-19 patients.

Director-general of Health, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, said there was still no treatment or cure for Covid-19. The Chinese experts shared what was done in curbing and controlling the infection rate of the illness in their country.

“Traditional medicine is not used as a treatment but to complement the recovery process, for example the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can probably speed up the recovery process.

“We had detailed discussions with them (experts from China) as well as shared their experiences from which we can learn and try to avoid pitfalls and shortcomings that they encountered,” he told a daily press briefing on Covid-19, here yesterday.

Dr Noor Hisham said the Health Ministry team will have an exit conference with the Chinese medical experts and plan on having a more detailed discussion regarding treatment and medicine.
