The Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) held an online meeting with members of a Malaysian alumni association to share experiences in COVID-19 prevention and treatment at its international school May 11.
Representatives of the university, medical workers from hospitals affiliated to the university and nearly 80 Malaysian alumni attended the meeting.
Three medical workers who had helped treat COVID-19 patients at the Leishenshan Hospital in Wuhan talked about TCM practices in the battle against the epidemic.
They answered questions from Chen Wentian, a doctor from the alumni association, on drug use and symptoms identification.
Xu Jianguang, president of the university, said the Malaysian alumni association has been playing an active role in promoting TCM to the world and enhancing Chinese-Malaysian friendship.
He said TCM has been proved effective in COVID-19 treatment and he hopes cooperation between the university and the alumni association can help make full use of TCM in the anti-virus fight.
Lin Renji, head of the Malaysian alumni association, thanked the university's support in helping them fight the epidemic.
