Observation: Purell

Yesterday, at a rest stop, I was amused to notice the product description on a bottle of Purell brand hand-sanitizer (italics mine):

Purell kills 99.99% of most common germs that may make you sick.

What I found amusing was all the maybes in the description. What exactly is 99.99% of most? Just how different is it from 99.99% of all? And add to that the stipulation of ‘may’ and I’m kind of left a bit baffled about just how many germs Purell actually kills.
