Hospitals provide traditional Chinese medicine therapies on dog days


Xin Huafen, a medical staff member at her local hospital of traditional Chinese medicine, sticks dog-day paste onto the back of a resident at a square in Tiandong County of Baise, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, July 12, 2017. Wednesday marks the first day of the dog days, which means the three periods of the hottest season each year. People around China would swarm into hospitals of traditional Chinese medicine as they believe winter diseases could be cured in summer. (Xinhua/Li Xuanli)
