Experts reveal the terrifying impact of the coronavirus in China

Health experts have warned the possible impact of the coronavirus is likely to be terrifying.

It has already killed thousands across the Middle East and Eastern Europe, and new cases are still occurring across several countries.

Now, the British and Chinese governments have begun to adopt traditional therapies from ancient medicine to combat the fatal illness.

The government of the western state of California recently introduced an experimental drug to an infection.

It claims the drug, from a mix of traditional Chinese herbs, stopped the infection in some cases.

However, there are fears that the findings of one study comparing it to another drug could become widespread without proper trials.

The county administration of Dujiangyan in China has in recent months implemented a total ban on traditional Chinese healing and medicine.

Caiying, a traditional Chinese medicine doctor at the Qingkui Hospital in Wuhan, has become the first Chinese person in the world to remove a patient's infection with the viral infection, after undergoing a needle-free procedure on January 28.

'There are so many medications available but China's non-Chinese doctors and traditional Chinese doctors are not able to unite to invent a new drug. That's why we are pioneers,' she said.

Experts believe its possible that the effect of the viral infection may be similar to what Chinese people have experienced with homeopathic injections in the past.

Homeopathic treatments are believed to cause the body to produce its own medicines. They have been performed for thousands of years throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Because homeopathy is considered a natural form of pharmacology and largely legal, it can be practised more freely than other alternative therapies.

Several other industries in China - such as pet treatment and tourism - have come under the scrutiny of the authorities for their use of homeopathic methods.

The Ministry of Health in China has started to collaborate with other departments at the Peking University Medical School in Guangzhou to test and refine the efficacy of treating coronavirus patients.

Following in the footsteps of President Xi Jinping, Chinese scientists have launched an ambitious new project to develop a drug for the coronavirus.

A team of more than 40 researchers, scientists and doctors are to work together with the Health Ministry to develop the drug, while outside experts will help to establish its mechanism and to enhance the effectiveness.

The study is an example of China working with the world in tackling infectious diseases, and having 'sufficient knowledge' and 'good initial foundation' in developing a suitable drug, Chinese Minister of State Security Zhao Jinlang told state-owned Global Times newspaper.

The experiment will focus on identifying the mechanisms of the infection, and focusing on the treatment to achieve the desired results.

While the government has stated it has already assembled most of the ingredients for the anti-coronavirus drug, none have been produced so far.

Meanwhile, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) case count is still increasing as experts continue to monitor patients in more than 40 countries.

The number of fatalities is currently at 5,588 out of a total of 8,904, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Although the rate of infection has decreased in the past month, the death toll continues to rise, with about half of infected patients surviving.

Most of the reported cases of infection between August 2014 and January 2019 have been in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Tunisia.

The WHO added that Australia, Britain, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, the United States and Sweden, were also affected by the disease.

The WHO also revealed that the health infrastructure of these countries was largely vulnerable to such a viral infection.
