British bus company acknowledges that cash does not transfer virus

The pandemic was used as an excuse to accelerate the Ruling Elite’s plans for a cashless society, by falsely linking physical cash to the spread of the virus. Noticeably, the WHO made no such link themselves; they even publicly claimed to have been misrepresented on the issue by a British newspaper (“The Telegraph”) back in the early months of the pandemic (March 2020): “We did NOT say that cash was transmitting coronavirus,” said WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib, “We said you should wash your hands after handling money, especially if handling or eating food. Doing so is good hygiene practice.” 


"Cash is so old school", was a slogan on the website in 2021 of the British bus/coach company STAGECOACH, who acknowledged the WHO’s comments on cash yet still encouraged its’ passengers to avoid using cash. Stagecoach still accepted cash, but operated an ‘Exact Fare Policy’ for some areas. On their website in June 2021 they wrote: “Paying by cash? Our priority is to protect the safety of our customers and our colleagues. We’re really pleased that the amount of cash being handled on our buses has reduced since the Covid-19 restrictions began, but we recognise that there’s more we can do to help prevent the spread of this virus. Whilst we have seen a reduction in cash handling as a result of asking customers to use contactless, we are looking at opportunities to further minimise cash use.” 


On Stagecoach’s Exact Fares FAQ's it said: 


“Q. Why are you introducing an exact fare policy?...This is a temporary change to our policy that takes into account feedback from our customers and drivers to provide added protection and reassurance during the current Covid-19 pandemic. 


Q. Are you saying it isn’t safe for people to handle cash? The latest advice from the World Health Organisation says that there is no evidence of virus transfer from cash. However, we are listening carefully to our staff and customers on extra measures that will help them feel safe at the current time, and from the feedback we have received in some parts of our business, we know that reducing cash handling will help with this.”

I guess they need a gold reward for comming to this difficult conclusion.



"and from the feedback we have received in some parts of our business, we know that reducing cash handling will help with this.” 


So you take measures you know are pointless and then go ahead and say that they help?

Wtf is this twisted crap?


Cash doesent spread shit, nor does anything/anyone else.

'Professionals' know that cash has always crawled with bacteria, pens used by the public ditto, public phones (prior to mobiles)  door handles, buttons on cash machines - the list goes on - we have lived with all that for centuries - WE HAVE A SPECIFIC BODY SYSTEM TO DEAL WITH IT!!!
