Do you have access to any pictures of what a dead (HIV)virus exposed to the environment compared to a dead virus from disinfectant would look like. Would they look the same?? As you can tell, I didn't take many courses in microbiology. I can not convince a student that they are wasting their time using lysol on doors, shopping carts, etc. when dealing with HIV. She thinks it will KILL it more!
Unfortunately I do not know of any such comparison. What your student needs to realize is that HIV is an extremely fragile virus outside of the host. Once it's inactivated via environmental and/or external degradation.... there is no reactivating. Period.
