The coronavirus COVID-19 has presented a serious new threat to humans since the first case was reported in Wuhan, China on 31 December 2019.
By the end of February 2020 the virus has spread to 57 countries with nearly 86,000 cases, and there is currently no effective vaccination available. Chinese herbal medicine has been used in this epidemic with encouraging results, but with concerns regarding disturbance of patients’ digestive function. This study aims to explore the role of acupuncture in treating COVID-19 by investigating relevant current literature along with classical Chinese medicine texts on epidemics. Based on this analysis, acupuncture points and strategies are suggested for practitioners to use as a guide to treatment.
