Very small things can "die", as in be torn apart at a molecular level, very

Drop a crystal - a single crystal of typical size - of salt or sugar into a
glass of water.  Even with no further agitation of the water, how long
until you can no longer see it - until the crystal is completely
destroyed?  (Don't dump a whole spoonful in: the crystals toward the center
will be temporarily protected, but we're analogizing to individual droplets
in an aerosolized mist too small to provide such central protection.)

This crystal is way bigger than a virus.
