A rumour stating that tea cures coronavirus is going viral on social media. The rumour states that Dr. Li Wenliang, the Chinese doctor who warned about coronavirus in the initial stage also found that tea cures coronavirus.
On checking the facts, it was found that the Chinese doctor did not find any cure for the disease. As for the tea's healing powers, according to an article, the Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that tea consists of chemicals that kill the virus in the cells engineered in vitro experiments. But they concluded that in vitro tests are not enough to prove that tea helps in curing coronavirus.
