I know that a polland person saw germs first and he could not know that it was 
germs.( he did not know that it was germ)
But, I guess the other people found out that it was germ, but who found out 
germ and knew that it was germ? When? Where was the person from? Why did the 
person name it "germ"?
Thank you for your support.^^
