China is disinfecting and destroying cash to contain the coronavirus spread

China’s central bank is implementing a new strategy to deep clean or destroy potentially infected banknotes. Disinfecting the cash is being done under ultraviolet light and high temperatures and then quarantining it for up to 14 days before releasing it to the public. The destroyed notes will be replaced with freshly minted currency.

IMHO, a smart move. Thankfully, people increasingly use electronic payments these days.
