7. Spraying Only Disinfectant Is Good Enough To Kill Viruses

Spraying disinfectant on surfaces is not enough to kill the existent bacteria and viruses.

You firstly need to clean the surfaces with water and soap or another alcohol based cleaning product or a bleach based one.

After they touch something, humans leave behind a cellular material called biofilms and it stops the disinfectant from destroying the virus.

The World Health Organization even admits that this is also the case for the streets. Spraying disinfectant is not enough to eliminate COVID and can even affect people’s health.

WHO also mentions that ”disinfectant is inactivated by dirt and debris”.
