China Encourages Qigong Exercise Amidst the Coronavirus Epidemic

The China Health Qigong Association, under the joint supervision of the General Administration of the Sports and Civil Affairs Ministry, advised people to do qigong exercise, as people must stay at home due to China’s fight against the novel coronavirus.

Qigong is an ancient system of coordinated body-posture, movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, martial-arts, and spiritual exercise.

The most famous qigong exercise in China was Falun Gong which the Chinese Communist Party banned and has persecuted since 1999.
