Online health services play role in coronavirus fight

March 01, 2020


Abstract : Online health services have played a significant role in China's fight against novel coronavirus outbreak, reducing the chance of infection by regular hospital visits, a Chinese health official said Saturday.

BEIJING, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- Online health services have played a significant role in China's fight against novel coronavirus outbreak, reducing the chance of infection by regular hospital visits, a Chinese health official said Saturday.

In early February, provincial-level health administrative departments were asked to quickly establish and open provincial online health platforms and organize qualified Internet medical institutions to provide relevant online and offline services, Guo Yanhong, an official with the National Health Commission, said at a press conference Saturday.

The services include follow-up medical services for chronic patients and online counseling services, Guo said, adding that some fever patients also received medical consultations online.

"The online health services not only enable the public to obtain convenient, fast and accessible medical services and medical consultation services, but also reduce the chance of cross-infection by avoiding patients gathering in hospitals," she said.

Guo pointed out that the number of medical visits to fever clinics in east China's Zhejiang Province has been reduced by 50 percent due to the opening of online health services.
