Cash Usage Regarding COVID-19

Medical experts have confirmed that cash, including coins is safe to use – there is no evidence that either coins or cash spread COVID-19.

The World Health Organization has rejected reports that it warned COVID-19 could be spread through handling cash. WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib said, ‘WHO did NOT say banknotes would transmit COVID-19, nor have we issued any warnings or statements about this.’
