Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2-infected pneumonia (novel coronavirus-infected pneumonia [NCIP]) is a new viral illness initially identified in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. According to the daily report on the epidemic situation of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) issued by the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People's Republic of China on March 23, 2020: COVID-19 is highly infectious, causing extremely high incidence of NCIP throughout Wuhan and has spread swiftly to 34 provinces within China and >100 other countries around the world between January and March 2020. Up to August 11, 2020, there have been 89,383 cases diagnosed as coronavirus-infected pneumonia; and 4,696 deaths in China (mortality rate of 5.25%) and worldwide reports have confirmed 19,936,210 cases and 732,499 deaths. These figures have been increasing daily. The treatment of viral conditions is well established within the context of Chinese Medicine. We report 2 successful cases in this study showing the patient's chest computed tomography scans and temperature charts made on before, during, and after treatment to demonstrate proof of the positive benefits achieved. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) demonstrates a positive effect in the treatment for COVID-19. It is highly recommended that TCM be incorporated early on in the treatment schedule for COVID-19.
