In what case can you get COVID-19 from a banknote?

The specialist announced this during an interview with Sputnik radio. So, according to him, coronavirus infection can be transmitted when people touch one bill, but this does not always end with infection. Brovko noted that for the virus to enter the body, it is not enough for it to be on the skin, since infection occurs through the mucous membranes.

The expert also said in which case it is still possible to contract a coronavirus from a bill.

Theoretically, there is a possibility of a virus on some object. Probably, on money it (the probability of the presence of a virus – ed.) Is higher, because a large number of objects are in contact with them. But this does not mean that you can get infected from money. This is possible only if a highly infectious person sneezes on a banknote, then another person touches it and immediately after that starts rubbing their eyes. But, in theory, this can happen with a telephone, a doorknob, and so on. “– Brovko warned.
