  • From farmer to legislator - Chinese woman writes her own success story
    by Xu Haoyu, Hu Dongmei on May 28, 2020 at 2:53 am

    Ma Huijuan, a 40-year-old woman born in the small village of Heiyanwan in Guyuan city, Ningxia Hui autonomous region, has worn out 12 mobile phones in 10 years. With the screen name Stream Breeze, Ma has typed over one million words, sharing her life on Chinese blogging platform, Qzone. "'What for?' I've been asked this question so many times, sometimes even by myself," Ma says, "Eventually I figured out, I'm not reading and writing to achieve anything, but only to nourish my soul." Since she became literate, Ma hasn't passed up any opportunity to learn. She used to stare at newspaper pages pasted on the wall in her home for a whole day. Ma quit studying after graduating from junior high school due to her family's economic limitations-a situation that, for a long time, left her yearning for her textbooks, and her parents were frustrated they could not help their daughter.

  • China sets up 'green channel' for international passenger flights from approved countries
    by Wang Keju on May 28, 2020 at 2:42 am

    The country's top civil aviation authority said it has set up a "green channel" to streamline the approval procedure for chartered international passenger flights that are out of work-resumption purposes. In a notice dated Monday but posted on its website on Wednesday, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said the establishment of the green channel aims to coordinate epidemic prevention and control work and facilitate economic and social development. The green channel will simplify the approval procedures and shorten the processing time for chartered international passenger flights that are approved by the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council, or are in line with "fast-track lane" rules, the notice said. China has recently opened a "fast-track lane" with several countries for essential personnel on urgent visits in the areas of commerce, logistics, production and technological services. […]

  • No Covid-19 cure but Chinese herb capsule shortens fever, fatigue and coughing: Research
    by Phoebe Zhang on May 28, 2020 at 1:49 am

    A Chinese herb combination can help ease the symptoms of Covid-19, say some of China’s top scientists after conducting a multi-centre trial. According to a previous diagnosis and treatment protocol by the National Health Commission, Lianhuaqingwen (LH) capsules are recognised for treating symptoms of Covid-19, such as fatigue and fever, but not Covid-19 itself. There is not yet a confirmed cure for the disease. The scientific paper was published on Phytomedicine journal on May 16 and the research team includes Li Lanjuan , director of the State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases, Zhang Boli, president of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Zhong Nanshan , China’s “Sars hero” and veteran infectious disease expert. Lianhuaqingwen is a compounded Chinese herbal medicine comprising several plant products, including Japanese honeysuckle and golden-bell. The researchers recruited 284 Covid-19 patients in February from 23 hospitals in nine Chinese provinces for the study. […]

  • Chinese surveyors reach summit of Mount Everest to remeasure its height
    by Wendy Wu on May 28, 2020 at 1:40 am

    A Chinese survey team reached the summit of Mount Everest on Wednesday, as they attempt to remeasure the exact height of the world’s tallest mountain. Having been delayed twice this month due to bad weather, the eight-member team set off from a camp at 8,300 metres (27,230 feet) at around 2.10am on Wednesday, reaching the peak after nearly nine hours, state media reported. They stayed at the summit for a record 2½ hours while they put up a survey marker, installed a global navigation satellite system receiver, and used a snow-depth radar to collect data. It is part of a comprehensive scientific survey of the mountain to determine its current height, and it is expected to take two to three months for researchers to collect, process and analyse the data. Dang Yamin, director of the Institute of Geodesy and Geodynamics at the Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping, said a huge earthquake five years ago may have changed the mountain’s height. […]
