Bromelain inhibits COVID-19 in vitro by degrading/cleaving the viral spike protein and two host cell surface receptors

Could pineapples be a new weapon against COVID-19:

The Bromelain concentration tested was 75 micrograms/mL which might be achievable by supplementation. Still, this is only in vitro study in monkey kidney cells. It is not clear if the necessary concentration can be achieved in human lungs and if it's safe in human bloodstream. Bromelain is a digestive enzyme that degrades proteins after all.
