Now we know what a virus is – how do we kill them?
Last week, we asked: “What is a virus?”. We commented that it is an agent that can cause disease, but it is not “alive” in the classic meaning of life. This time we are going to look at how we can kill it or more accurately, prevent it causing disease and mayhem. This is not only important for human health, but also in agriculture and farming as plant and animal husbandry pathogens can be extremely damaging.
