Demand of Chinese Herbal Medicine Demand Surges in the United States with the Spread of Coronavirus

Recently, Kamwo Meridian Herbs, a Chinese medicine pharmacy in Chinatown, New York City, said that customers' demand for traditional Chinese medicine had increased sharply. Kamwo Meridian Herbs opened in 1973 and has been providing Chinese herbal medicine, Chinese herbal medicine, and natural health care products. 
In kamwo, since the coronavirus cases confirmed in late February began to spread in the United States, orders for Chinese herbal prescriptions to treat influenza-like symptoms and enhance the immune system have almost doubled, pushing up the price of Chinese herbal medicine.
In Calihouse Nutrition, another pharmacy in Chinatown, New York City, the person in charge said that 40 pounds of medicine that could have lasted for two to three weeks had been sold out in a few days.
He said that the best medicine sold was honeysuckle and Compound South Isatis Root Granules, which was hard to find in the store and the price was rising rapidly. MayWay, a San Francisco based Chinese medicine company, said it had seen a rare increase in its orders and had taken measures to limit purchases.
As demand is so high, herbal suppliers and practitioners are beginning to worry that some herbal medicines, almost entirely from China, are increasingly in short supply. Novel coronavirus pneumonia has been launched in China, and the government has launched a series of emergency research projects, including Chinese medicine. Last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially recognized traditional medical therapies such as acupuncture and complementary Chinese medicine.
