The following dietary advice was taken from medical staff in China who have been working at the frontline up until now. It was suggested that this porridge can be used both as a prevention as well as dietary supplementation for those affected to improve symptoms and increase appetite.
I have attached my explanation of the ingredience used to make it more acceptable to the general public.
Please help to spread this around as it can benefit many of those especially with mild symptoms and are self isolating at home.

Theory in Chinese Medicine:
From Chinese medicine point of view, COVID-19 is a disease due to cold and damp. This porridge has the effects of warming stomach, expel cold, relieving cough, and reduce sputum
•I understand that many people do not trust Chinese Medicine or thinks that herbal remedies can lead to kidney damage, thus I have attached an explanation to the ingredients used.
•Ginger and jujube are all normal ingredients we use normally
•Dried ginger and fresh ginger are slightly different in Chinese medicine so my advice is to add both
•Liquorice – although a Chinese medicine, it is also used as a sweetener in chewing gums. The liquorice we use is either dried liquorice or liquorice dried with honey.
