CORONAVIRUS WARNING! Don't want to alarm anyone but the corona virus will soon spread in a irreversible way. The first means of contamination are bank notes. DO NOT TOUCH THEM. Take them with gloves and put them in sealed envelope and leave them by your front door. Tomorrow morning i'll come by for collection and elimination, i'm doing this for the good of public health.. don't thank me🤪🤪
Wierd I remember hearing a story a month or so ago about a massive amount of fake small bills caught up in customs from China and it they thought it was odd to go through the trouble creating small bills
There are more banknotes, but in the day of credit cards a letter will pass through more hands and come into contact with more additional letters on a given day.
At least in the US. This wouldn't necessarily be true for other countries
Almost every register you see is individually counted every day, stored away, then dispersed to a register the next day. So anybody who counts registers also handles quite a few bills every day. Not to mention even if only 20% of people regular make cash transactions it’s still a great method to spread a disease within a community
I am a postman and probably touch 2000 letters and parcels per day. If someone at the sorting office had the virus then it could easily still be active on the mail.
If I had the virus the 2000 items I deliver could be passed on to customers when they empty their mailbox
The difference is you are a single person touching all the letters. Banknotes get passed around between a lot more people, and there are way more cashiers/tellers in this country than people handling letters who are essentially doing the same thing you are.
