Six patients infected with the novel coronavirus were discharged from Shandong Provincial Chest Hospital in Jinan, East China's Shandong province, on Thursday. Among them, a woman pregnant for three and a half months was cured through treatment with traditional Chinese medicine, according to the hospital.

Considering some Western medicines might have side effects on the fetus, the hospital only adopted traditional Chinese medicine treatment on her during the whole process. The other five patients were given medical treatment with both traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine.

Four of the six patients said they would like to donate their plasma to save those in critical condition after learning that plasma from recovered patients is effective in treating the coronavirus.
