World Health Organization Warns Contaminated Cash May Spread Coronavirus

The World Health Organization is (WHO) is advising people to wash/sanitize their hands after using cash because cash might be helping spread the coronavirus. 

According to Fox 5,"WHO told the Telegraph on Tuesday that customers who use cash bills should consider using contactless payments instead as coronavirus (Covid-19) may cling to the surface of paper bills for multiple days." 

After the outbreak in China and Korea, both countries began disinfecting their bills using ultraviolet light or high temperatures to sterilize the cash bills. 

It has not been confirmed how long the coronavirus can survive on surfaces and objects, but it's believed to be about nine days at room temperature. 

It's essential always to wash your hands, but especially with the threat of coronavirus, you can never be too careful or sanitized.
