Effects of Chinese Medicine for COVID-19 Rehabilitation: A Multicenter Observational Study

Introduction

In March 2020, World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of a coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to be a pandemic . According to WHO, most patients had mild or uncomplicated forms of COVID-19, while approximately 14% were estimated to be associated with a severe acute respiratory infection and required hospitalization and oxygen support, and 5% required admission to the intensive care unit.

With the clearance of SARS-CoV2 infection and recovery from acute clinical symptoms after treatment, the functionality of patients was still impaired. Impairments, whether severely or mildly affected, included not only pulmonary problems but also physical weakness and problems of the psychosocial domains. Even being discharged from hospitals, patients still present significant clinical symptoms such as cough, fatigue, poor appetite, shortness of breath, and poor sleep. Since the sequelae and long-term effects of COVID-19 has not been understood completely, its effects on patient rehabilitation required further study. In Hong Kong (HK), valuable experience was gained on combating the outbreak of a severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic in 2003. A review of the publications during and after the SARS crisis enabled us to get an objective view of the value of adjuvant therapy using Chinese medicine (CM) .

About Long COVID Care Center

1.Brief introduction to the origin, background and business of Long CovidCareCenter

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, a large number of patients with long covid have been caused all over the world. According to authoritative reports, as of July 1, 2022, there were more than 16.3 million patients with Post Covid-19 Symptoms in the United States, accounting for 4.89% of the total United States population of 333 million. There are more than 1.8 million patients with Post-Covid conditions in Britain, accounting for 2.678% of the total population of 67.22 million in Britain. It is known that there are 7.753 billion people in the world. Thus, according to the most conservative estimate, assuming that 2% of the people suffer from Post Covid-19 Symptoms, the total number of patients will be as high as 155 million.

David Lee, founder of Long Covid care Center, has been engaged in rehabilitation of chronic diseases of the elderly and CDMO of biomedicine, relying on Sanke Pharmaceutical and Yaohai Bio. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, he has been devoted to the prevention and treatment research of the epidemic. During this period, he has accumulated a lot of experience in treating long covid with integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine. The COVID-19 research project of Hong Kong Hospital Authority also confirmed that Chinese medicine is a better solution to some Post Covid-19 Symptoms. For the specific research, please refer to the paper, Effects of Chinese Medicine for COVID-19 Rehabilitation: a Multicenter Observational Study.

In order to spread the experience of treating Post Covid-19 Symptoms with integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine, and to better provide services for a large number of patients with long Covid around the world, Long Covid Care Center was established. Long Covid Care Center hopes that through the combination of Chinese and Western medicine, many patients with Post Covid can be provided with another choice to improve their symptoms of Long Covid besides pure Western medicine.

Long Covid care Center is actively studying a better treatment scheme of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine. IT experts are invited to build an efficient remote consultation system, so that more patients can get personalized rehabilitation treatment suggestions according to their own health conditions and symptoms after online consultation.

[Note: due to the limitations of remote consultation, we can only provide services for mild patients with Post Covid-19 Symptoms. If the patient’s long covid symptoms are severe, or in an emergency or serious state, they needs to be sent to the hospital for emergency treatment or hospitalization. Long Covid Care Center cannot provide online consultation services for such patients.]

2.What are the Long Covid? What are the symptoms of Long Covid?

Long Covid (also called post-COVID conditions), which is defined by World Health Organization, refers to the symptoms of physical discomfort after being infected by Novel Coronavirus, and the standard is that the patient physical discomfort still exists after three months after being tested positive by PCR for the first time. Post Covid-19 Symptoms can be roughly divided into the following categories:

(1) Long Covid cognitive brain fog, such as dizziness, fatigue with brain, memory loss, difficulty in concentrating, and Parkinson’s disease-like senile dementia.

(2) Long Covid chronic fatigue, such as fatigue, muscle weakness, insufficient endurance, decreased physical strength, palpitation, tachycardia and arrhythmia after exercise.

(3) Long Covid respiratory system, such as shortness of breath, mild asthma, frequent cough and sore throat.

(4) Long Covid chronic pain, such as chronic headache, chronic muscle pain, wandering neuralgia, soreness of limbs and joints, and chest pain.

(5) Long Covid metabolism and immunity, such as Type-II diabetes symptoms, intestinal stress syndrome, gastrointestinal discomfort, chronic stomachache, chronic abdominal pain and frequent diarrhea.

(6) Long Covid nerve and mental disease, such as loss of smell, loss of taste, blurred vision, insomnia, anxiety and melancholy.

These long-term symptoms are stubborn, and the rehabilitation treatment with Western medicine alone is not effective. Therefore, we use the combination of Chinese and Western medicine to treat Post Covid-19 Symptoms, so that patients can get the best treatment effect of Long Covid.

3.What departments are there in Long CovidCareCenter? What symptoms are the corresponding doctor teams good at treating?

In order to facilitate patients’ understanding, Long Covid Care Center is divided into the following departments according to the symptoms. Doctors in the departments are good at the following diseases:
