    "Set your minds at rest, wanderers on a long journey! Place your nostalgia on the hometown grains!" These two lines are from a health package issued by the Chinese Embassy in Italy. Since the savage days of the pandemic, many Chinese students have received "health packages" from the motherland, among which Lianhua Qingwen, the only medicine, has been rated as a popular Chinese patent medicine in the eyes of overseas media.
