Pandemic Packages arrive this morning

This is the contents of Pandemic Care Packages being given to every single person in Hong Kong, by the Hong Kong government.

20 masks, 20 RATs and two boxes of Lianhua Qimgwen, Traditional Chinese Medicine. Which I’ve seen online — maybe fake news — is owned by a friend of the Shanghai mayor. In turn a friend of Xi Jinping, a major promoter of TCM. My task now: track down the study that allegedly shows how effective this TCM is. It’s been mentioned a lot in the local press, but nowhere with a link to the study. I’ll be looking for fhe P-value which measures its statistical significance. 

ADDED: there’s no suggestion we’re meant to use this TCM as a prophylactic or only when we test positive.
