Coronavirus: Banks to sanitise cash


Members of the Ghana Association of Bankers, as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus, have agreed to regularly sanitize banknotes.

Although the World Health Organisation says banknotes do not transmit the coronavirus, the banks are taking precautions.

The Association, in a statement issued in Accra Monday said, they will adhere to the World Health Organisation and Ghana Health Service hygiene protocols and guidelines on COVID-19 in order to protect public health.

In furtherance of these protocols and guidelines, members of the Association have also agreed to share services and facilities with each other.
