What's On

Official statistics indicate that more than a million Hong Kong people contracted Covid-19 over the past few months -- and the real number is likely to be much higher, according to respiratory disease experts. The fifth wave of the pandemic has also put immense pressure on the city's public health system.

The use of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to treat and prevent the spread of Covid has become more widespread. Local authorities in Hong Kong and the Mainland have embraced the use of TCM as a tool in the fight against the pandemic and to reduce its wider impact on society.

How can Chinese herbal medicine help in the prevention and treatment of Covid, including the highly infectious Omicron variant? What role can TCM play in protecting against "long Covid" – a condition characterized by lingering symptoms after patients have recovered from the initial infection?

Join us on 18 May when Dr Liong Ching, Head of Clinical Division and Professional Consultant of the School of Chinese Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, will share practical advice on using TCM to treat Covid. She will share her insights on how TCM can help protect against catching the virus, improve the recovery process, shorten the course of the disease, and delay disease progression. She will also discuss the use of telemedicine in providing virtual clinical services to patients.
