At the same time, with the continuous development of modern medical science, a large number of popular science journals have sprung up to publicize and promote common scientific knowledge and medical technology such as medical treatment, health, medicine and health. In particular, the emergence of WeChat public platform has become an important form and means of health communication. Therefore, it is of great significance to study how to carry out health communication in the Internet era. In this study, a semi-quantitative study was conducted to study the writing rules of medical popular science articles in the era of WeChat.
