Traditional medicine is not scientifically proven to combat Covid-19 but the Ministry of Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah didn’t rule out that it might have a positive effect for treatments.

He said, although they can’t cure the disease, alternative therapies such as acupuncture or herbal medicine might be able to complement these treatments.

Commenting on Malaysia authorities collaborating with their Chinese counterparts, Dr Noor Hisham said discussions revolved around learning from China’s experience in handling the virus.

He also said that they will conduct an exit meeting on 1 May to identify the best practices from understanding how the country dealt with the disease and how Malaysia can improve.
