Some 30 ambassadors, other senior diplomats and spouses heard the important tips at the El Tower in Seoul on this morning (June 9, 2020) which are viewed to be helpful on how to beat the on-going (and, in some countries, continuously aggravating) COVID-19 cases.
Speaking at a two-hours seminar, Dr. Seo Hyo-seok of Pyunkang Oriental Medicine Hospital told the ambassadors and senior diplomats, “Pyunkang-tang, an Oriental promotion preparation, can help people protect themselves and stay away from the dreaded, fast-spreading contagious disease.”
“To stay away from COVID-19,” suggested Dr. Seo, “it is most important for us to strengthening our immunity against the disease and in this effort we hear that Pynkang Tang was very helpful.”
In an extended introduction to the on-going COVID woes in Korea and around the world, Dr. Seo pointed out that the tonsillectomy that prevailed in Europe 40 years ago—alluding to that COVID was spreading worse in Europe than in other parts of the world.
Then he declared: “We hear that removal of the tonsil could cause bronchial asthma and I would say that we cannot deny the existence of relationship between the wider spread of COVID-19 and he removal of the tonsil among the people in Europe.”
The meeting was attended many ambassadors and other senior diplomats of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps (SDC), who, off-hand, included Ambassador Irineo Raul Silvero Silvagni of Paraguay (dean of the visiting members of the SDC that day from seniority) and Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Romania, Ukraine, Honduras, Zambia, Bangladesh, Senegal, Peru, Slovakia, Kyrgyzstan, Bolivia, Russia, Bulgaria, Sierra Leon and Cote d lvoire.

During the two-hours meeting, Dr. Seo elaborated on how to stay away from COVID-19 and also gave answers to questions asked by the ambassadors and spouses.
In introducing his solution, Pyunkang-tang, Dr. Seo stated that it was not medicine but health beverage but that proper use of the health beverage increased the immunity capability in the human body and protected the users from falling victim to the fast-spreading, dreaded disease.
