TL;DR: It is demonstrated that highly persistent, drug-resistant and transmissible healthcare pathogens such as Clostridioides difficile and Candida auris can be rapidly inactivated on the solid surface of a self-disinfecting anionic block polymer that inherently generates a water surface layer that is highly acidic (pH < 1) upon hydration.
