Coronavirus has been raging recently, each of us tries to purchase the best disinfectant for against the virus. Before your purchase, do you know which one is suitable for you?There are different kinds of disinfectant in the market. Some of them said that they can kill the germs; some of them said that they are anti-bacteria. Do you know the differences between them? The following will help you to define the differences between Viruses, Bacteria and Germs. After you read this blog, it can help you to choose the best disinfectant that suits your needs.
What is Viruses?
It is an organic species between living and non-living organisms that live by parasites. It is neither living nor non-living. It is not currently attributed to the Five Realms (prokaryotes, protozoa, fungi, plants and animals). When the virus entre our body, it will find a suitable cell and it will entre some cells in the host. Then, the virus will gain nutrients from the host cell and multiply. As a result, the host cell will be destroyed. Your body will finally get a disease. To prevent and treat the virus, we can vaccinate and take antiviral drugs.
What is Bacteria?
It is a tiny, single-celled organic organism that has a great impact on human activities. On the one hand, bacteria are the pathogens of many diseases, including tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, plague and other diseases are caused by bacteria. However, humans often use beneficial bacteria to make cheese and yoghurt and wine, some antibiotics, and wastewater treatment, all of which are related to bacteria. To deal with bad bacteria, antibiotics are commonly used to deal with it, so that these bad bacteria can be destroyed or the reproduction speed of bad bacteria can be delayed so that the immune system can destroy them.
What is Germs?
The broad sense refers to the microorganisms that make people sick, and the above viruses and bacteria are also one of the germs.
Now, do you have a preliminary concept after such a simple explanation?
Alcohol is a common sanitizing method that people often use. It can kill bacteria or viruses. However, alcohol is not useful for some non-enveloped viruses such as hand, foot and mouth disease (enterovirus E71), rotavirus, and coronavirus infection. Alcohol can only help to make it inactive, but cannot kill it. Moreover, you need to pay attention to the concentration of alcohol. The alcohol works perfectly under 60%-80% concentration. If the concentration is too high, it will affect the performance of the alcohol.
Maybe you ask, is there any other method that can be simpler and more direct, and even more effective disinfection?
The answer is yes, that is the ultraviolet rays that we are often exposed to. Ultraviolet light disinfection technology can destroy the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the cells of microorganisms by using ultraviolet rays of appropriate wavelengths, causing growth cell death and / or regenerative cell death to achieve sterilization Effect.
The only small flaw is that it is more difficult to find products using UV disinfection technology, but rest assured, now I recommend a product I like very much to you, let us fight the epidemic together!
