Methods: The survey was designed by an international team, translated and adapted to simplified Chinese, including 132 kinds of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) preparation recommended by guidelines. It was distributed and collected from February to May 2021, with data analysed by WPS spreadsheet and Descriptive statistics were used to describe demographics and clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatments, preventative behaviours and interventions, and their associated outcomes. Results: The survey was accessed 503 times with 341 (67.8%) completions covering 23 provinces and four municipalities in China. Most (282/341, 82.7%) respondents reported no symptoms during the pandemic and the majority (290/341, 85.0%) reported having a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test at some point. Forty-five (13.2%) reported having a respiratory infection, among which 19 (42.2%) took one or more categories of modern medicine, e.g. painkillers, antibiotics;16 (35.6%) used TCM interventions(s);while seven respondents combined TCM with modern medicine. All respondents reported using at least one behavioural or medical approach to prevention, with 22.3% taking TCM and 5.3% taking modern medicines. No respondents reported having a critical condition related to COVID-19. Background: We aimed to investigate use of infection control behaviours, preventative and therapeutic interventions, and outcomes among respondents to an online survey during the COVID-19 pandemic in China. Conclusion: We found evidence of widespread use of infection control behaviours, modern medicines and TCM for treatment and prevention of COVID-19 and other respiratory symptoms. Larger scale studies are warranted, including a more representative sample exploring TCM preparations recommended in clinical guidelines.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on tourism-driven industries worldwide. As East Asia is gaining control in the fight against the coronavirus, countries in this region started easing their travel restrictions. Tourist-oriented retail stores are slowly preparing to receive international visitors again, and to be well adjusted, it is crucial to understand foreign customers' perceptions. From the seven most popular tourism platforms in China, we collected comments about Lotte Young Plaza in South Korea and applied semantic network analysis to understand its perception among young Chinese customers. Based on this analysis, we divided the conclusions into 6 aspects: People whose main purpose is to buy clothes, people who have communication needs in Chinese, the Lotte Department Store's driving force on customer flow to Lotte Young Plaza, young people, features of Lotte Young Plaza (mouthwash) and cosmetics.
