The National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China recommends injections containing bear bile in official guidelines for the treatment of COVID-19 with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), a global environmental non-profit, discovered Tan Re Qing, a Chinese patent medicine, among the government’s COVID-19 treatment recommendations. (You can find it on the official list here.) One of the ingredients in Tan Re Qing is bear bile, which is harvested from the gallbladders of bears, either in the wild or from bears held in captivity and “milked” for their bile. (In response to a claim that this was “fake news”, EIA posted a rebuttal, with further evidence.)

The irony of this in light of the virus' probable origin, nevermind the absurdity of a national government actively pushing nonsense folk cures, is as laughable as it is outrageous.

Even more reason to distrust *anything and everything* the Chinese government comes up with.

Next they will come up with injecting Soybean Oil (one of their exports.)
