Are Tzu Chi volunteers privately giving out Lian Hua Qing Wen and ivermectin to COVID-19 patients?

Take a look at the viral messages, and find out what the FACTS really are!


Claim : Tzu Chi Volunteers Giving Out Lian Hua + Ivermectin!

These messages are going viral of WhatsApp, claiming that Tzu Chi volunteers are privately giving out Lian Hua Qing Wen and Ivermectin to COVID-19 patients.

For the past many serious covid patients called Tzu Chi for help … privately volunteers passed them Lian Hua and ivermectin, etc at least a gamble to take … if go hospital , will die there as no treatment is given … early stage breathing difficulties they may give ventilators …if very serious …Will leave to struggle …

Yes people told me if kena covid serious is best don’t admit gov hospital coz they’re too busy to take cars of u. You’ll be left out and many will die coz not properly taken care. Of can , got money go gov hospital or get stand by lian hua, zinc, vit C, invermectin. Also stand by oxygen


Truth : Tzu Chi Does Not Give Out Lian Hua Or Ivermectin!

This is yet another piece of COVID-19 fake news circulating on WhatsApp. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Tzu Chi Does Not Give Out Lian Hua Or Ivermectin!

I called up the Tzu Chi Foundation’s office, and they confirmed that the viral message is fake news.

The Tzu Chi Foundation cannot dictate what their volunteers do privately, or prevent people from claiming to be their volunteers.

However, they do not know of any of their volunteers doing this, and they certainly do not give out Lian Hua Qing Wen or ivermectin.

Neither does the Tzu Chi Foundation advocate their use for COVID-19.

Fact #2 : Ventilators Are NEVER Used As Early Treatment

Mechanical ventilation is a form of life support – a last resort when the patient is unable to breathe on their own.

Ventilators are NEVER used as an early treatment for COVID-19, as they can potentially injure the patient’s lungs or respiratory muscles.

Fact #3 : Government Hospitals Do Not Leave Patients To Die

Government hospitals get an undeservedly bad rap for inefficiency and slow service.

The truth is Malaysian public healthcare system is an institution we can count on – they will never turn patients away or leave them to die.

Since the pandemic started, it has massively expanded its capacity to treat COVID-19 patients, converting wards into temporary ICUs, and opening up massive quarantine centres for those who have mild COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Vitamin C Not Proven To Work Against COVID-19

Vitamin C has not been proven to work against COVID-19.

  • US CDC :  Insufficient evidence to recommend either for or against the use of vitamin C for the treatment of COVID-19.
  • TGA : No evidence to support intravenous high-dose vitamin C in the management of COVID-19

Fact #5 : Zinc Not Proven To Work Against COVID-19

Zinc has not been proven to work against COVID-19.

  • US CDC : Insufficient evidence to recommend either for or against the use of vitamin C for the treatment of COVID-19.
  • US CDC : Recommends against using zinc supplementation above recommended dietary allowance for the prevention of COVID-19.
  • TGA : Insufficient data to recommend neither for nor against the use of zinc for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19.

Fact #6 : Ivermectin Does Not Work Against COVID-19

Ivermectin has been shown to work against COVID-19 in lab (in vitro) studies, but does NOT improve clinical outcomes or prevent transmission.

That is why the WHO and the vast majority of health authorities around the world DO NOT advocate using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Fact #7 : Lian Hua Qing Wen NOT Proven To Cure COVID-19

Despite being approved as a treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 cases in China, there is currently no evidence that Lian Hua Qing Wen can cure COVID-19.

That’s hardly surprising because Lianhua Qingwen is merely a mix of herbs :

Forsythia suspensa (Thunb.) Vahl (Weeping Forsythia) Fruit -27.41mg Lonicera japonica Thunb. (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower-27.41mg Gypsum Fibrosum-27.41mg Isatis indigotica Fort. (Isatis) Root-27.41mg Dryopteris crassirhizoma Nakai (Male Fern) Rhizome and Frond Bases -27.41 mg Houttuynia cordata Thunb. (Heartleaf Houttuynia) Aerial Part- 27.41 mg Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. (Cablin Patchouli) Aerial Part-9.40mg Ephedra sinica Stapf (Ephedra) Herbaceous Stem-9.14mg Prunus sibirica L. (Bitter Apricot) Ripe Seeds-9.14 mg Rhodiola crenulata (Hook. f. et Thomson) H.Ohba (Bigflower Rhodiola) Root and Rhizome-9.14mg Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch. (Liquorice) Root and Rhizome-9.14mg 1-Menthol-7.50mg Rheum palmatum L. (Rhubarb) Root and Rhizome-5.47mg

None of its ingredients have been proven to cure COVID-19, although poor quality studies have demonstrated that it is effective in reducing fever.

And yes, Forsythia is the name of the fake homeopathic cure created by Jude Law’s character – Alan Krumwiede in the medical thriller – Contagion.

Fact #8 : Ivermectin Can Cause Liver Damage

I should also warn strongly against self-medicating with ivermectin, as it is not as safe as FLCCC or MAECC make it out to be.

Usual treatment against parasites involves a single dose of ivermectin, not daily or weekly doses.

When people started taking ivermectin prophylactically to “prevent COVID-19”, doctors started reporting cases of liver damage.
