The severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread globally. By now no specific drug has been proven effective for the treatment of patients with COVID-19. RenQingMangJue (RQMJ), as a traditional Tibetan medicine (TTM) for detoxification, was shown beneficial for digestive diseases and biological toxicity. In this study, RQMJ capsule (RQMJ-C) was used to treat COVID-19 positive patients combined with conventional treatments.
