Persimmon tannins may restrain activity of coronavirus???

When I heard this news,
I thought that’s kinds of fake news.

I was curious, I looked it up.
If it is True or Fake.

they added a high concentration of persimmon tannins to a sample of human saliva with the new coronavirus in it. After 10 minutes, they then compared the sample with another where the tannins had not been introduced, and found that the virus’s infectivity had reduced to one-ten thousandth or less of what it was before.
