Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the National Health Commission and the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine have jointly released nine editions of the diagnosis and treatment plan, of which the fourth to ninth editions recommend Lianhua Qingwen Capsules for the medical observation period.
Who are included in the medical observation period? Asymptomatic infected persons, confirmed cases, suspected cases and close contacts of asymptomatic infected persons, entry personnel, and discharged patients with new coronary pneumonia, etc., among these groups, the most worthy of mention is the close contact group.
So can Lianhua Qingwen be used for close or sub-close contact? There is precisely a real-world research paper on “Lianhua Qingwen Capsules for the Prevention of Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia” in the international journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is a clinical trial of traditional Chinese medicine for the prevention of close contacts of the new crown. The researchers selected 1976 subjects who had close contact with people infected with new coronary pneumonia, and divided them into Lianhua Qingwen intervention group (1101 cases) and control group (875 cases) to receive Lianhua Qingwen Capsules (4 capsules at a time, 1 at a time) respectively. 3 times a day) routine medical observation for 14 days, the results confirmed that the positive rate of nucleic acid detection in the Lianhua Qingwen intervention group was significantly lower than that in the control group (0.27% vs. 1.14%), and the preventive application of Lianhua Qingwen in the close contact group can reduce the positive rate of new coronary pneumonia The infection rate is 76%, and it has good safety.
This is medically scientific, rigorous real-world research evidence.
Lianhua Qingwen brings together the effective three dynasties of traditional Chinese medicine to fight the epidemic for two thousand years. Prophylactic administration forms a unique immune barrier and reduces the incidence of disease by improving the body’s immunity and anti-viral ability. Cut off the disease situation and let asymptomatic infected people take Lianhua Qingwen. By fighting the virus, they will not show symptoms and turn negative as soon as possible. Symptomatic patients improved their symptoms through medication and no longer became severe. Both prevention and treatment, combined with prevention and treatment, can be used with symptoms, and also applicable without symptoms, which is the advantage and characteristic of Lianhua Qingwen.
Because of the highly contagious and hidden characteristics of Omikron virus, many asymptomatic infected persons who are in the incubation period or not detected in time may cause unconscious transmission, and some patients cannot be diagnosed in time in the early stage of virus infection. Quarantine, with the development of the epidemic, the emergence of “time and space companions” has further expanded the scope of close contacts. The study that Lianhua Qingwen Capsules can prevent new coronary pneumonia and reduce the positive rate of close contacts by 76% enlightens us that taking Lianhua Qingwen at home and taking medicine in time is beneficial to reduce the incidence and prevent the spread of the epidemic.
How do the space-time attendants take it? Short course of treatment can be taken: 4 capsules at a time, 3 times a day, for 3-5 days.
Some people suggest that stomach discomfort occurs after taking the medicine, and they should be taken with warm water after meals, or eat hot gruel or hot ginger water in moderation, and the discomfort will disappear.
Used for the prevention of close contact and sub-close contact population, it is the discovery of scientific experiments in clinical application, and it is also the requirement of the program.
