That means drinking wine, specifically wines with tannins will stop SARS virus. The polyphenol compounds are also antioxidants and scavenge free radicals. This leads to anti-inflammatory effects. It was shown that tannins prevent infection and control the virus growth. Of course they're talking about making a drug for it but just cut to the chase and drink wine.
