Institute Scholar Claudia Witt, MD, MBA co-authors a paper for the use of complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine for the treatment of COVID-19. The paper, Complementary, alternative and integrative medicine (CAM) for the treatment of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): an overview, is a joint publication of the Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine, University Hospital Zurich and Cochrane Complementary Medicine Switzerland. The reviewers found extensive use of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in COVID-19 treatment and identified five case series suggesting potential effectiveness. However, there is currently insufficient evidence to recommend any specific CAM treatments for COVID-19 disease.
