Everywhere I look, Purell hand sanitizers appear in public and semi-public places. I see them now at the courthouse. I just got an email from our building, stating that the management will mount dispensers here and there for our use. All of this, of course, arises from the flu epidemic that the country anticipates.
Natural selection being what it is, my question is this: What sort of new bugs are we breeding with these sanitizers? Would it be safe to say that the next round of flu viruses will be impervious to Purell and perhaps more dangerous, simply because of universal Purell use?
UPDATE: Mary and Cody set me straight on this. Please read their comments. As to my questions, we are breeding no new bugs with Purell and the next round will not be impervious nor more dangerous, simply because of Purell use.
