Since December 2019, the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has erupted in many places around the world, which is strong infectious and highly epidemic. After the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been in the front line of the fight against the epidemic. It has shown characteristics and advantages in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. TCM also played an important role in the winter of 2002 and in the spring of 2003 during the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). This article compares the strategies, programs, measures, resource investments, and effects of TCM for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 with those for SARS. At present, the involvement of TCM has been earlier, faster, and more comprehensive in the fight against the epidemic and has shown good clinical efficacy and treatment prospects.
