Yu Yan Hong, deputy-director of Popular Medicine in <a href="https:\/\/www.nytimes.com\/2020\/02\/12\/world\/asia\/china-coronavirus-cases.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">China<\/a>, said that the sweeping majority of tens of thousands of people who recovered from the infection with Coronavirus have been treated with popular medicine.\r\n\r\nThe recovered persons discharged from hospitals after they got also courses of thee western medicaments, according to the Chinese official.\r\n\r\nHe appeared in a news conference today and pointed out that mingling the local medicine with the western one proved to be very effective to a big number of the infected cases.\r\n\r\nHe revealed that 74,603 thousand of the recovered people across China, were treated with the popular medicine.\r\n\r\nThis number is about 92,5% of the recovered people.\r\n\r\nA team of medical experts assured that mingling methods of Chinese medicine with those of the western ones treats symptoms of the infection with the Coronavirus such as fever, dry cough, and fatigue.\r\n\r\nThe combined method reduces the possibility of developing the symptoms from light and periodical ones to severe and critical symptoms to increase the percentage of recovery and reduce deaths.\r\n\r\nYan Hong affirmed that the Chinese focus on improving defenses of the human body against the epidemic to make the body repair itself and keep general balance.\r\n\r\nThe World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency over the deadly new strain of the virus that has infected thousands of people and left more than 1,000 dead. Chinese officials have blocked all transportation in and out of the city of Wuhan and surrounding areas, where the outbreak of the "2019 novel <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/who-coronavirus-may-turn-into-pandemic-soon\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Coronavirus<\/a>" or "2019-nCoV" originated.\r\n\r\nThe illness has spread to more than 20 countries around the world, and multiple cases have been confirmed in the U.S.\r\n\r\nThe news was abrupt and, to some, surprising: Overnight, a Chinese province near Russia had cut its count of confirmed coronavirus cases by more than a dozen.\r\n\r\nThe revision stemmed from what appeared to be a bureaucratic decision, buried in a series of dense documents from the national government. Health officials said that they would reclassify patients who had tested positive for the new Coronavirus but did not have symptoms, and take them out of the total count of confirmed cases.\r\n\r\nThe documents offered little detail or explanation, and skepticism was immediate. A Hong Kong newspaper called the decision a \u201cdisguise.\u201d World Health Organization officials seemed caught off guard when asked about the move at a news conference this week.\r\n\r\nThe change in counting cases is only one factor that has made it difficult for experts to determine the true scale of the epidemic. In fact, the shifting landscape of how infections are defined and confirmed has led to significant variations in the estimates for the extent of the outbreak.\r\n\r\nEarly on Thursday, provincial officials in Hubei province, the center of the outbreak, announced that nearly 15,000 new cases and 242 new deaths were recorded in a single day, largely because the authorities expanded their diagnostic tools for counting new infections.\r\n\r\nUntil now, only infections confirmed by specialized testing kits were considered accurate. But those kits have been in such short supply \u2014 and so many sick people have gone untested \u2014 that the authorities in Hubei Province have started counting patients whose illness has been screened and identified by doctors.\r\n\r\n\u201cThat may be terribly unfair,\u201d Mr. Brown said. \u201cTo redefine things \u2014 even legitimately \u2014 at a moment like this is always going to be a presentational challenge, because people are going to be very sensitive, and they\u2019re going to suspect there\u2019s another agenda.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe new numbers out of Hubei came only a day after China reported that new infections had hit the lowest point in a single day since Jan. 30. Experts cautioned then that it was premature to draw any conclusions from the drop.
