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.
