Green options for controlling primary disease transmission risk

There is currently a global concern regarding disease transmission, ranging from viruses such as COVID-19 to bacteria, fungi, parasites and other disease-causing agents. One of the most effective methods for the prevention of disease transmission still remains hand washing, which the WHO recently advised as the primary method for prevention of spread of COVID-19. The same principle applies to cleaning, where a proper safe and biodegradable detergent will be perfectly suitable for cleaning during the pandemic. Some current opinions indicate that at the virus particle level, this is more effective than sanitization, because of the detergent action on the viral outer fatty layer.
