In the US, "anti-vaccine nuts" already use soap and water and paper towels though I'm not sure about the not-spitting part. Part of the problem is that as a technology gets less obvious and more technical more people will not understand it well enough to believe in it. So, why didn't the Chinese hospital have soap and water is probably a good question? Should we believe that they unfamiliar with the Germ Theory of disease?
