Currently it's thought that the coronavirus can live actively on surfaces up to 10 days. That includes the cash you take with you and receive every time you make a purchase. As with any unusual problem, the internet will come up with some interesting solutions. Paper money has been ironed on high heat, it's been microwaved and in china they are using ultraviolet light to keep the money supply clean. One website suggests you should quarantine your newly acquired money for at least 10 days. All of these methods yield differing levels of success. If your using your card at the checkout, remember not to pick your nose after signing your name with that nifty community pen.

    • I forgot Europeans have those rfid scan chips. I've just started to see those here in the states.

    •  You guys in the states need to demand this now it should be mandatory. It also makes spending money you haven’t got that much easier 😂

    • I've seen Apple pay available but I've never used it. Is that a touch free card?

    • Yes cultures are very different from place to place. I've never gone without a gun my whole life. Dad bought me my first gun when I turned 10 after I had the hang of it.
