No increased risk of coronavirus from the use of cash


9th March 2020

The World Health Organization (WHO) has denied that cash and, specifically, banknotes transmit the coronavirus. Also the European Central Bank (ECB) rules out that the new coronavirus COVID-19 spreads through banknotes.

The Eurosystem conducts regular research into the possible impact that the circulation of euro banknotes can have on public health, including in relation to viruses. "At the moment there is no evidence that the coronavirus has spread through euro banknotes," says a notice from the issuing institute. In fact, the ECB stresses that the risk of transmitting the virus through a banknote is "very low "compared to other surfaces such as door handles, railings, light switches or shopping baskets.

There have been some articles in the British media stating that WHO has said that banknotes could transmit COVID-19 and that they warned against using cash. This information was misrepresented and false.
