I have experience running barefoot, is it safe, unsure. I came across things like broken glass and garbage that I had to dodge. Not to mention people are always spitting and dog pee. I never got sick but it is gross to think about, I don't run bare foot anymore. I built up callouses on hard surfaces months before I hit the road hard to say if that made it safer.
