The EPA is conspiring with private industry to price gouge the general public with proprietary formulations.  Instead, we, the public, need a list of generic disinfectants against coronovirus.  For example, 91% isopropanol of no particular brand is a generic disinfectant.

30 ppm silver costs practically nothing.  A generic product widely available to the general public is silver nitrate.  In fact, I have a pound that has been collecting dust in my basement for 40 years.  I want to know the effective concentration of silver nitrate for disinfecting coronavirus.  The federal government is GROSSLY remiss for not providing such information to the general public.
