There is a lack of rigorous data showing traditional Chinese medicine works against coronavirus

This August 2020 photo provided by a Uyghur person under quarantine shows an unmarked white bottle containing traditional Chinese medicine on a table in Urumqi, China.When police arrested the middle-aged Uighur woman at the height of China’s coronavirus outbreak, she was crammed into a cell with dozens of other women in a detention centre.

Harsh lockdowns have been imposed elsewhere in China, most notably in Wuhan in Hubei province, where the virus was first detected. But though Wuhan grappled with over 50,000 cases and Hubei with 68,000 in all, many more than in Xinjiang, residents there weren’t forced to take traditional medicine and were generally allowed outdoors within their compounds for exercise or grocery deliveries.

Once a day, she says, community workers force traditional medicine in white unmarked bottles on her, saying she’ll be detained if she doesn’t drink them. The AP saw photos of the bottles, which match those in images from another Xinjiang resident and others circulating on Chinese social media.Authorities say the measures taken are for the well-being of all residents, though they haven’t commented on why they are harsher than those taken elsewhere.

Not all the recent outbreak measures in Xinjiang are targeted at the Uyghurs and other largely Muslim minorities. Some are being enforced on China’s majority Han residents in Xinjiang as well, though they are generally spared the extrajudicial detention used against minorities.

“The most terrible thing is silence,” he wrote on Chinese social media site Weibo in mid-August. “After a long silence, you will fall into the abyss of hopelessness.”“I’ve been in this room for so long, I don’t remember how long. I just want to forget,” he wrote again, days later. “I’m writing out my feelings to reassure myself I still exist. I fear I’ll be forgotten by the world.

When this nonsense attack on China and intensional fabrication on ethnic groups in China going to stop? Sick of these craps! This is why so many there are more racism.

That was reported week ago in the Epoch Times.

Just like Trump.

I just checked random ppl’s posts on Weibo, seems, most of them (or everyone) were under a 45-day mandatory quarantine at home... and just allowed to leave their apt like 2 days ago...

“There’s a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime...'

Feels a little Mengeles like to me!
