The virus got hosed by the City of San Diego.
The city announced (see image below) that to “combat a Hepatitis C outbreak” from the Human Immunodeficiency Hepatitis C Virus, that they will be, get this, adding bathrooms on the streets and power washing the sidewalks with a bleach solution.
Who knew that bleach kills viruses!
Side effect – the killing off by combat of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus as well, which again takes us to the simple fact that MPPI (Medical Science Populist Ideas) don’t seem to ever accurately portray…….viruses can be killed by bleach even though viruses are dead things, even though no virus is a living thing.
Bacteria, fungus, parasites, they are living things.
People who have to go to the bathroom on the streets and businesses and residents around these areas have for decades have begged the city to install more PUBLIC TOILETS so that the sidewalks would not smell of piss but they often will not because the trend has been in order to stop sex from occurring in public and to “curb disease and spread of HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV to close toilets at night, lock some permanently, and remove some.
