Academician N.Moiseev recognized that the survival of mankind can only be ensured if the biological principles of the habitats necessary for this are sustainably taken into account. Therefore, he promoted the education of as many people as possible, so that each individual is enabled to direct his behavior in such a way that the ecological requirements are not left out for lack of appropriate knowledge. This leads to two conclusions, e. g. for epidemics: To take into account the roots of the emergence of new pathogens and to disseminate the principles of biological relationships as generally as possible. Therefore, the principles of epidemic hygiene and their psychosociocultural interdependencies were presented. It becomes clear that a distinction must be made between the fight against the epidemic — and thus against the pathogen — and the fight against the consequences of the penetration of the pathogen into the organism, i. e. against the infectious disease and its indirect consequences. The transition of these two process areas ALWAYS takes place in individual persons, thus is always decided by the individual process. In a pandemic, a large number of people around the world go through this process individually at the same time. A pandemic is nota tsunami that hits everyone just because he is there. The individual characteristics, which can be strengthened and weakened in a variety of ways, even in the short term, are decisive for whether contact with a carrier leads to contamination of the mucous cells of the respiratory tract or not, whether the pathogens are destroyed thanks to the resistance of the nonspecific defenses or can still penetrate the body (infection in the real sense), and whether others can already be infected in this phase. Even a fight against contact between infected and infectious persons, no matter how differentiated, therefore only leads to a temporary reduction in new cases, but neither lowers susceptibility nor contributes to the destruction of the pathogens. Antibodies can only act where they are, i. e., only when the pathogens have entered the organism, but not in the extracorporeal space of the respiratory tract. Therefore, intramuscularly vaccinated persons and persons recovered from COVID19 can be reinfected, pass the germs on to third parties and thus contribute to the spread of the epidemic. If one wants to limit the spread of the pathogens, one must strive to lower the susceptibility, e.g. by strengthening and supporting the natural extracorporeal defense and to killthe pathogens and thus to lower their chance to penetrate the organism. This is also the method of choice in the fight against new mutants. The possibilities of fighting against the spread of pathogens have been largely neglected so far. It is pretended that the fight against the consequences of the epidemic is identical to the fight against the epidemic.
