COVID-19 is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by novel coronavirus infection. It belongs to the category of "epidemic disease" in Chinese medicine, and the key to the pathogenesis is "lung qi stagnation, loss of dispeiseive and descending", so the treatment should be based on the main principle of "supporting the righteous and dispelling the evil", with the lung being the main focus and the five organs being harmonized. "The stasis of metal should be adjusted" is one of the "five Yu" treatment methods in Huangdi Neijing.With the extension and deepening of the connotation of 'The stasis of metal should be adjusted ' by later doctors, this method has been flexibly applied to the treatment of clinical diseases and opened up a new path for clinicians. Based on the exploration of the academic thought of "The stasis of metal should be adjusted", this paper discusses COVID-19 from different perspectives. Based on the connotation of "Jin Yu", the author analyzes the key pathogenesis of COVID-19 -- "Lung Yu" from three aspects of lung physiological function, clinical symptoms of COVID-19 and treatment based on syndrome differentiation. And based on the connotation of "Xie zhi" proposed xuan xie method, qing xie method, tong xie method, shu xie method, shen xie method, run xie method, kai xie method seven treatments. It is hoped to provide different perspectives and ideas for clinicians to recognize and treat COVID-19.
