Its a good plot, but I do believe that banks and various institutions routinely clean or at least radiate the money as it flows.  Plus I also regularly wash my hands and I would hope other sensible people wash their hands after handling dollar bills since we don't know where the heck they have been?  Sheesh, makes me wanna go wash my hands right now!!

That was a great idea for a plot, the dollar bill virus thing.

@madgame23 Good point, I ALWAYS wash my hands after handling mail or money, its just a habit, I do it within seconds of handling the stuff (I also carry around hand sanitize in my car if I'm on the go).

@AuronAXE it's just too bad the majority of the worlds currency is digital. honestly, who uses cash anymore?

@King_Wii @madgame23 But say you put that infected bill in your wallet and for the next 15-17 days if you touch your wallet the virus has already spread to whatever you have touched after. Say your itchy eye, that scab you have, that dry skin or mosquito bite, hugging a friend. It is impossible to completely prevent exposure.

@shuffles88 @AuronAXE I work at a retail store in a low income area in the United States. Trust me, plenty of people still use cash.

@shuffles88 @AuronAXE Who says you couldn't pick up a virus by entering your pin on a keypad for your debt/credit card and then touching your eyes, mouth, or nose??

There's also many other ways to contract a virus. I think they singled out money because it sounds better than "A virus can live on door knob for 30 minutes" or whatever it was. Fit's in with the collapse of society thing a whole lot better IMO because of how much misplaced value we put in currency.

@shuffles88 @AuronAXE According to what data?  Do you think everyone in India, Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, etc. all use credit/debit vs. physical currency?  I'm willing to bet that more countries than you think use physical currency more than card/digital based transactions.

It really depends on where you live and Cash as a physical commodity holds more value in people's mind because there is no questioning its value when you physically have it in your possession.  

I manage a couple of rental properties and many of the tenants prefer to pay rent with cash because they don't trust banks, or don't want to hassle with a bank account, bank fees, etc. So more people use cash than you think.
