Juxiechang (Beijing) Pharmaceutical Co has donated 200,000 boxes of Jinhua Qinggan Granules -- one of three TCM medicines that have been proven effective in treating COVID-19 patients -- to major charities, trade unions, media and medical colleges in Hong Kong.

The medicine is expected to reduce the pressure resulting from a shortage of medical resources, as it has been included in the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth treatment guidelines provided by the National Health Commission.
