Thanks for your historic context. Very interesting! From an ecology point of view, I think desinfection is not all. We can kill all bacteria and viruses (and all other species with it) and it will only bring us in further mess.
It will take us downstream. We put a bandaid on, live as we lived before and dream on. I think it's time to start looking upstream for some solutions. We need to restore ecosystems and learn as human beings how to live within them.
As a wise part of them. Instead of ruling and killing bacteria and viruses. They have a function you know. As everything has a function on this wise planet of ours. We just have to embrace this wisdom and slign our economies with ecology and the human spirit.
It can be done. But only the tip of the iceberg understands and starts acting. However, we are building the wave. It's happening!
