The World Health Organization has issued a warning that handling money may spread coronavirus and is urging people to stop using cash when they can. In a warning this week, WHO reminded people that money picks up the disease which can stay on surfaces for hours if not days. 'We know that money changes hands frequently and can pick up all sorts of bacteria and viruses and things like that. 'We would advise people to wash their hands after handling banknotes, and avoid touching their face. 'When possible it’s a good idea to use contactless payments,' a spokesman told The Telegraph earlier this week.

Comments:

There's going to come a point where everyone leaves the house with surgical gloves on their hands, just to protect themselves from the virus.

Don't look people in the eye. The virus will jump out of their eyes into yours. Then you're screwed.

I'll help you #4. I will be happy to take in all that dirty money to keep everyone safe!! Seriously speaking, this is undoubtedly an opportunity for those control-freak tyrants to try to force a cashless society on us. I will never, ever accept a cashless society. I would rather die first. They will be happy to force their chips on us to enslave us and take our souls. No way!!

This is when I know to ignore a "reporter": "the disease can stay on surfaces for hours if not days". So which is it, hours or days?! I tell you what would be helpful - real reporting of how long the coronavirus can stay on a surface. You know, like science.

There are surfaces and products we cannot avoid touching. Frequent hand-washing and sanitizer use will help a lot. I keep a small sanitizer bottle in my car. The WHO is always hysterical about something or other. Ignore them.

I sure am glad that we have WHO. I would have never been able to figure that one out on my own. Use credit cards but never mind shopping carts, gas pumps, salt, pepper and ketchup in restaurants, door handles, safety poles in subways and buses, elevator buttons, huggers and hand shakers. All of those little virus traps just waiting to bite you.

Here we go! Another reason for a cashless society where your every transaction can be monitored and approved through AI! Want to go buy a gun or some bullets for target practice or hunting...check, you are now a domestic terrorist threat in the Database! You bought a tent and some camping supplies...check, you are a far right wing prepper terrorist and are logged in the AI database! You bought a 4WD pickup truck that burns mother gaia tears...check, you are...you get the picture.

Got this in a recent email: Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who's graduated with a master's degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance: 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

With Joe Biden regaining his position as the Democratic front runner, the scrutiny of him by the right has renewed. When Biden looked like the helpless, distant finisher he was a few weeks ago, it wasn’t worth the energy. Things have changed in a hurry, though. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is still mumbling about billionaires, signaling that he’s not serious about doing what it takes to win the race. While Biden may represent a larger threat to Trump in a general election, he’s still a ripe target for political ridicule and the sights are starting to turn on one specific thing. Namely, the former Vice President’s mental health.

President Trump said he had no plans to scale back his campaign rallies and was not concerned about the new coronavirus reaching Washington, D.C. Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-Lago, ahead of a working dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsanaro, he was asked whether the emergence of a case at last month's Conservative Political Action Conference would force him to change his mind on holding big campaign events. "We'll hold tremendous rallies," he said.

Ben Carson argued during a congressional hearing this week that the rights of transgender individuals in federally funded homeless shelters do not override the rights of abused women. The secretary of Housing and Urban Development was speaking during a congressional hearing Wednesday, where Democratic Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley challenged HUD’s stance that federally funded homeless shelters have the right to install bathrooms and sleep areas based on biological sex. Quigley argued that HUD was essentially saying "that if someone doesn't like someone else in that shelter, for whatever reasons, that you can allow discrimination against those people."

America's strong job growth is surprising even the experts. They predicted that there would be 175,000 new jobs in February. Instead, the economy created 273,000 jobs and the unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent. What's more, December and January's job numbers were adjusted upward by 243,000. And if you can stand it, here's more. CNBC: The previous two months’ estimates were revised higher by a total of 85,000. December moved up from 147,000 to 184,000, while January went from 225,000 to 273,000. Those revisions brought the three-month average up to a robust 243,000 while the average monthly gain in 2019 was 178,000. But before you pop the champagne corks and celebrate Trump's re-election,

Here we go again. Fake News CNN dredged up old false allegations against Rep. Jim Jordan on Friday and dragged out six wrestlers who claim the Ohio lawmaker knew about an abusive OSU doctor. The original hit job from the swamp goes back to July of 2018. The swamp unleashed a smear campaign on Jordan in July of 2018, accusing him of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse as Ohio State wrestling coach. The law firm handling this case was none other than Perkins Coie; the same law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and paid for the fake Russia dossier.

Five teens have been charged in connection with the vicious mob attack of a 15-year-old girl on a Brooklyn sidewalk, police said Saturday. The boys turned themselves in to police at the 77th Precinct in Crown Heights after the caught-on-camera beatdown showed a group of two dozen youths savagely attacking the girl and — stealing her Air Jordan kicks to boot. The victim was walking on Utica Avenue near Sterling Place Thursday afternoon when a pack of teens descended on her, punching and kicking her repeatedly in the head as she lay helplessly on the pavement, wild video shows.

Among the most notable voters who abandoned Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Super Tuesday were Native Americans. Warren spent decades claiming she was “part Cherokee and part Delaware” — even taking a disastrous DNA test to try to prove it. She was ultimately forced to apologize and admit the claim was bogus, as President Trump mocked her as “Pocahontas.” “I think that her claim and digging in her heels and the [DNA test] did hurt her,” Simon Moya-Smith, a 36-year-old Native American activist, told The Post. “That’s why I voted for Bernie on Super Tuesday, and I didn’t vote for her.”

The 36-year-old had to be raced by helicopter to a team of surgeons after the 330-pound animal he was stalking in southwest France stormed him, according to the outlet. The deer tore a chunk of skin off Saubion’s mug, under his cheek and eye — causing him to “feel drunk” from the impact and amount of blood loss, he said.

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

George Soros and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into Chicago to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters. The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far. The PAC received its entire $2 million budget from a group created and funded by Soros.

March 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. In its first decade, ObamaCare has failed to solve many of the health care problems it was supposed to address. Even worse, it has compounded many of the issues it was meant to fix — the law of unintended consequences in action. First, then-candidate Barack Obama said his namesake act would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premiums by up to $2,500 a year.” In reality, the opposite has occurred. According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “premiums have doubled for individual health insurance plans since 2013,
