Italian Member Societies of Traditional Chinese Medicine :


    At present, Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has entered into a stage of a global pandemic. Europe has become the hardest hit area of the epidemic, especially in Italy. Italy´s economy and society could be seriously affected and people´s health and lives seriously threatened. Both China and Italy are now experiencing the severe test of the COVID-19 epidemic. We feel the same as you and are deeply concerned about this. Here, World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS) secretariat expresses sincere condolences to Italian member societies of TCM and all TCM colleagues.


    In the face of the epidemic, Italian member societies of TCM took the initiative, bravely taking on the responsibility, actively participating in and contributing their strength. You set up an epidemic emergency steering group in a timely manner to assist Chinese organizations in the prevention of the disease and treatment by TCM. You called on relevant health departments to communicate with the Chinese Embassy, actively putting forward prevention and treatment suggestions, and providing TCM services for Italian COVID-19 patients. In this regard, we firmly support and express our admiration and praise.


    After months of hard work, the epidemic prevention and control in China have undergone positive changes and have achieved important results in stages. During the critical period of China´s anti-epidemic campaign, it received valuable support from the Italian government and the Italian people, especially overseas Chinese and TCM colleagues who extended a helping hand to China´s epidemic prevention and control in various forms. Here, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks!


    The fight against COVID-19 is a war without gunpowder smoke and without borders or races. Italy has taken a series of resolute prevention and control measures to deal with the epidemic. We are confident that Italy will overcome the epidemic. WFCMS is willing to cooperate with Italian TCM colleagues to advance hand in hand and to overcome difficulties together. We believe that we will be able to overcome the epidemic and welcome the dawn of victory!
