Health administrative departments at all levels should cooperate with TCM authorities to push medical institutions that admit patients to establish and improve the joint consultation system of TCMand western medicine, in which TCM and western medicine synergistically participate and cooperate at all time, so that TCM is able to intervene deeply into the prevention, control and clinical treatment of infectious diseases. For medical institutions for centralized treatment of patients with infectious diseases, both general and specialized hospitals participating in the treatment of infectious diseases, and institutions with TCM department (TCM and Western Medicine Department), a close and normalized consultation system of TCM and western medicine should be set up and the diagnosis and treatment scheme should be formulated.
