A post from PYMNTS.com on 3/5/2020 noted that “the World Health Organization (WHO) is advising people to not use paper tender and to use as many cashless options as possible to help contain the spread of the coronavirus. Officials with WHO say that while cash isn’t more or less likely to spread the disease, it can carry the virus just like door handles and hand railings, and can spread it on contact”.
To avoid the spread of the disease you can use your debit or credit card instead of cash. InsurCard suggests that you remove germs from your card by using an antibacterial wipe to disinfect your card.
