We have been solving problems by breaking them into pieces since we were young. According to David Bohm, trying to see whatever is broken into pieces as a whole is a futile effort as trying to put together the pieces of a broken mirror and see our true reflection.

We can't get the whole thing right, we're missing the big picture. Fragmentation; different nations, religions, political and economic orientations have interfered not only with the social structure but also in our personal perception. We cannot see the result of our actions. Like the cells that make up the body, we have lost the sense of connectedness over the years, even though we are part of a larger whole. The thought of being individual ignored the voluntary / involuntary interaction with each other. That's why we thought that the disaster at one end of the planet we live in would not reach us.

In the COVID19 process, which reminds us that we are actually "one", the pharmacy was taken as a place from the areas where the risk was high and the contamination could be high. The changes in working conditions during the pandemic process, the measures taken, and the new structures included in the pharmacy life were tried to be observed. Especially, how protection, disinfection and sterilization mechanisms affect pharmacy life has been revealed. Disinfection process, which destroys and degrades the viral structure, was repeated on the photographic surface and the structure was destroyed, fragmented, and its integrity was broken. The dispersed parts are now disinfected and reveal the new whole.
