Abstract:
      This paper is a discussion of Professor Tang Nong’s approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19) while providing a case report at the end. Professor Tang Nong considered that the main etiologies of the disease are “cold, wet, and poisonous.” He suggested resolving the body’s dampness by balancing internal organ functions, detoxifying the lungs, and providing heat. However, the treatment of cold with herbs and cleansing heat must not be performed too early to prevent the spread of the disease. Using principles from the basic theory of Fuyang Pai from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), this project used the Huashi Qingfei immune formula (modified Guizhi Erchen decoction), which has been shown to be effective, to treat patients diagnosed with COVID‑19. At present, the participation of TCM in our hospital is over 96% with a cure rate of approximately 90%.
