Chapter 336 A Bad Apple
Lin Momo also believed that Wang Dacheng had not done this deliberately. Her tone softened, but she still said, “Then tell me, what should we do now? Do you really want to let Xiaoxiao go to jail?”
“Of course not!” Wang Dacheng patted his chest and said, “Momo, don’t worry. I will not let Xiaoxiao go to jail, even if my family loses everything.”
Lin Momo said, “Wang Dacheng, remember your words. If you dare let Xiaoxiao suffer even a little bit, I will not forgive you.”
At that moment, Qin Haodong walked over, patted Wang Dacheng on the shoulder, and whispered, “God is watching your every move. Don’t do anything that goes against your conscience. Otherwise, you will die miserably.”
He had whispered these words, so his tone was very soft. However, Wang Dacheng felt the coldness of these words in his ear and shuddered.
Lin Momo told Che Xiaoxiao, “Let’s go eat. It will help with the shock!”
Che Xiaoxiao said, “No need. I have been out for so long and this big incident happened to the company, so there must be a lot to deal with. Let’s eat together some other time.”
Lin Momo sighed and said, “Okay, it’s your choice!”
After talking, the four of them went their separate ways. Each drove their car away from the crime squad.
After getting into the car, Lin Momo said angrily, “I don’t know what Xiaoxiao owed Wang Dacheng in her past life. Instead of being a general manger, she followed him here to go through all this suffering!”
Qin Haodong said, “No one forced them. One of them was willing to fight, while the other was willing to suffer. Did you not notice how happy Xiaoxiao was so far? To her, this is not suffering.”
Lin Momo sighed. “I hope the Wang family will be more conscientious and solve this matter quickly.
The Wang family has been operating for many years south of the Yangtze River, so they should be well-connected. In addition, Wang Haiting is the president of the Chamber of Commerce south of the Yangtze River. If they do their best, it should not be a problem. At least, it shouldn’t be difficult to give Xiaoxiao probation.”
Qin Haodong said, “The most fundamental factor in this matter is satisfying the family of the deceased. Given the Wang family’s human and financial resources, this shouldn’t be difficult.”
Time slowly went past after they arrived back at the company. They noticed that the Wang family had taken no action, so the family of the deceased kept becoming more and more violent.
At the same time, this matter quickly spread online and reached the media. Various posts were published everywhere. Some people were asking for justice for the family of the deceased, some were cursing Zhang Tianhe and the Hall of Medical Fame, others were cursing Chinese medicine practitioners, and a few people cursed the Chinese medicine practitioners’ fake science, which they suggested should be abolished as soon as possible.
Some people also stood up for the Chinese medicine practitioners, especially people who had been cured by the Blood Revival Elixir. They became the backbone of the defense of Chinese medicine practitioners by arguing against those who wanted to abolish Chinese medicine practice.
However, what people found strange was that, ever since the beginning, the Wang family had not made any moves. There had also been no word from Wang Dacheng. It was as if they were letting this matter get worse.
Lin Momo grabbed a file angrily, threw it on the table, and said, “Wang Dacheng still hasn’t given the families of the deceased any compensation. What is he trying to do? Does he want to send Xiaoxiao to jail?”
Qin Haodong said, “Forget it. It’s no use worrying about it. Let’s wait a bit longer and see.”
On the second day, the riots about the incident of people dying at the Hall of Medical Fame did not die down. Instead, the argument became more heated. It was covered by all the news stations and media outlets in Huaxia. Many debates began across various media platforms about whether Chinese medicine practice was safe and scientific or should be abolished.
For a period of time, the Chinese medicine industry had been revitalized due to the influence of the Blood Revival Elixir, which had completely cured leukemia. However, this effect began to falter after the blow of this incident.
Qin Haodong frowned as he read the negative comments online. One rotten apple had spoiled the whole barrel. Although the Hall of Medical Fame had created this big incident, there was no response.
Just as he was worried about the future of Chinese medicine practice, Liu Yage angrily walked in.
Lin Momo asked, “What is it, Sister Liu? Who made you angry?”
Liu Yage said, “Momo, did you get on the internet today?”
“Too many things happened this morning, so I didn’t have time.” A look of joy appeared on Lin Momo’s face as she said, “What is it? Have there been any new developments in the Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame’s incident? Did the Wang family step forward to calm things down?”
Liu Yage said, “The damn Wang family has not taken any action. This matter is no longer just related to the Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame. Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company is now also involved.”
While she said this, she took out her phone and pointed to a few news articles. “Look, these people are saying that Chinese medicine practice is a lie. They are even saying that the Blood Revival Elixir is also fake and that it doesn’t have any effect.
Some people even argue that they want to come to Tangmen Company to protest and riot to make us stop production. They want to uncover the lies under the disguise of Chinese medicine practice.”
“Bullshit! Are these people blind?” This concerned the honor of the Blood Revival Elixir. Lin Momo could not help but swear and angrily say, “These people only know how to blame others on the internet. Have they not seen how many people with leukemia have been cured by the Blood Revival Elixir?”
Qin Haodong said, “Momo, you don’t need to be so angry. This whole incident seems to be a conspiracy. Someone must be making a move behind the scenes. It seems like they want to destroy Chinese medicine practice.”
Lin Momo nervously said, “What should we do? If Chinese medicine practice falls, then Tangmen Company will also be finished!”
Qin Haodong frowned. He could not take care of this matter by himself. In the end, he would still need to rely on the power of the authorities.
Suddenly, his phone rang. Pan Gaofeng, the director of the Sanitary Bureau, was calling.
“Doctor Qin, do you have time? Can you make a trip down to my office?”
Qin Haodong said, “Does this have anything to do with the Hall of Medical Fame curing people to death?”
Pan Gaofeng said, “Yes, it does. The impact of this matter is so big that it even caught the attention of the higher-ups. The ministry has asked us to take immediate action and try to minimize the negative impact on the Chinese medicine industry. Hou Weiguo is also here.”
Qin Haodong said, “Okay, I’ll be right over.”
After he hung up, Lin Momo asked, “Haodong, who is looking for you?”
Qin Haodong said, “It’s Director Pan of the Sanitary Bureau. I need to head over and have a look.”
After speaking, he hurriedly left Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company and headed over to the city’s Sanitary Bureau.
As soon as he stepped in, he saw Pan Gaofeng, the director of the Sanitary Bureau, and Hou Weiguo, the head of the Department of Sanity, sitting together. Their expressions looked heavy.
When he saw Qin Haodong walk through the door, Pan Gaofeng stood up and said, “Doctor Qin, you’ve arrived.”
Hou Weiguo said, “Doctor Qin, let’s cut to the chase. The Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame has caused a big stir. This incident is now even threatening the Chinese medicine industry. You are highly skilled and proficient in the Chinese medicine practice, so Director Pan and I want to talk with you to see if we can find a way to solve this difficult situation.”
Pan Gaofeng patted his head and said while feeling annoyed, “Medical incidents are actually normal. Some people just love to stir up trouble, so they will say anything.”
He picked up a newspaper from the table while he said this, pointed to it, and told Qin Haodong, “Look, a shitty expert wrote this. ‘Chinese medicine malpractice is frequent, so this fake science should be replaced by western medicine!'”
Qin Haodong took the newspaper and scanned it. The article was very long and listed many cases of deaths and disabilities caused by Chinese medicine practitioners in the past few years. At the same time, it also quoted experts and scholars who opposed Chinese medicine practice. In the end, it treated Chinese medicine as a fake science without any scientific basis.
It also called for the people of Huaxia to believe in science and use science and suggested that the Chinese Government should utilize scientific western medicine and replace Chinese medicine practice to ensure people’s health.
Qin Haodong threw the newspaper on the table and said, “After saying so much, why not show and compare the number of incidents between Chinese medicine practice and western medicine practice and see which one counts more accidents and which one has a higher death rate?
If the practice with the higher death rate was abolished, then western medicine would have been abolished a long time ago in Huaxia. Would these people dare to do this?”
Qin Haodong paused for a bit to relieve some of the anger in his heart and then said, “In fact, everyone knows that western medicine has a higher death rate than Chinese medicine. The death rate of Chinese medicine is at least a fraction less than that of western medicine. Even the rate of curing someone to death is no more than a fraction of the same rate of western medicine.
However, why is no one condemning western medicine practitioners? It’s because western medicine practitioners are foreign monks, so they don’t dare to fight and argue with them. On the other hand, Chinese medicine practitioners are their own children, so they can scold them however they like. Scolding them can get one a lot of USD and even a green card for M Country.”
Hou Weiguo said, “Haodong, if you’re angry, you don’t have to say it. We all understand these principles. What we need to discuss now is how to overcome the current difficulties and calm everyone down.
The media is getting more and more intense. A number of websites have opened an online vote to see whether the abolishment of Chinese medicine practice should be supported. People still support and love Chinese medicine, as there are more votes against the idea.
However, there are a few people who voted yes, and they are all people from Huaxia. Even our own people have agreed to abolish Chinese medicine practice. You can see how embarrassing the current situation is for Chinese medicine practice.”
Based on their conversation, it was obvious that the two chief officers both supported Chinese medicine practice. Qin Haodong said, “Head Hou, Director Pan, what do you two want me to do? As long as it will help Chinese medicine practice, I will definitely do anything I can.”
Pan Gaofeng said, “I have known Zhang Tianhe for decades. He is a very good doctor, and his medical skill is also very high. However, he has suddenly cured three people to death. I sense that there is something strange about this. You can help us see if there are any problems with this incident.”
Qin Haodong said, “Okay. Do you have information on the deceased or Zhang Tianhe’s prescriptions?”
He wanted to take a look at these materials and try to understand what had happened. However, after the incident, these materials had been taken by the police.
“We have prepared all the materials!”
Pan Gaofeng took out a package. After opening it, he handed a stack of materials to Qin Haodong.
Qin Haodong first opened the file containing the information on the deceased. Only by understanding their physical condition before death and their medical condition would he be able to determine if there had been anything wrong with the prescriptions.
There was information on all three of the deceased people. Two of them had experienced different degrees of stomach ache before death, while the third had suffered from a liver disease. However, none of their conditions had been particularly serious, at least not to the point that they would be life-threatening.
Qin Haodong carefully reviewed their medical history, memorizing information on their physical condition, time of onset, and drug use.
After he memorized it all, he opened the other file. Inside were the three prescriptions Zhang Tianhe had prescribed. The three prescriptions had been written by Zhang Tianhe, and at the bottom was also his personal seal. There was nothing wrong with these prescriptions.
Suddenly, Pan Gaofeng said, “Before you arrived, we also found some Chinese medicine practice experts and asked them to take a look at these prescriptions. They all said there was nothing wrong with them.”
Hou Weiguo said, “The biggest problem is that there is nothing wrong with the prescriptions. If there is no problem with the prescriptions the Chinese medicine practitioner provided, yet three people were cured to death one after another, this means that there is something wrong with Chinese medicine. It further confirms the remarks made by the people who think Chinese medicine practice is unscientific.”
