RMB or CNY is dirtiest paper money

RMB or CNY simply means Renminbi. In Chinese language- it means people's currency. It is the currency of mainland China. It is refuted to be the dirtiest paper money in the entire planet for each RMB bill was tested to contain as many as 180,000 bacteria. Even smaller bills were found to contain as many as 37 million. The paper currency gathered bacteria as they pass through people's hands. Some CPPCC (Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference) members submitted a proposal to the Chinese Congress in Beijing to disinfect the RMB regularly in China.

Fear of spreading bacteria to other currencies

Luo Tianchan- a deputy from Guangdong Province- during the congressional session of the CPPCC- brought up the issue of China's currency becoming too dirty while in circulation and having an adverse effect on the image of the country. The lady deputy added that because of the adverse weather condition prevailing in Guangdong compared to that of Beijing, she's afraid that the currency might spread large quantities of bacteria in Guangdong- her province. Other deputies echoed her concern.

Hepatitis infection among Chnese cashiers is 6 times higher than in other groups

Quoting more data- Ping Linji- another deputy- revealed that in China, each piece of paper money contains as many as 180,000 bacteria, which without any doubt makes it the dirtiest paper money in the world. The data likewise uncovered the fact that the rate of hepatitis infection among cashiers was 6 times higher than that of other groups as a result of an investigation on cashiers published by a university in Tokyo.

Installation of currency disinfection systems is suggested

Deputy Peng Linji suggested installation of currency disinfection systems to minimize infection and spreading of bacteria from currency. In this manner, the possibility of people from getting infected with bacteria from circulating currency will be greatly reduced

Chinese RNB contains 178,000 bacteria cells, the greatest among 7 Asian countries

Previous media reports revealed an experiment conducted by the Hongkong City College Bacteria Research Center that among 7 Asian countries - Hongkong, China, India, Pakistan, Cambodia, the Philippines and Korea - RMB currency contain the greatest amount of Bacteria. There were as many as 178,000 bacteria cells on the Chinese RMB which is 160,000 more than the currency used in Hong Kong and Cambodia in second place.

10 strains of bacteria, among them colon bacilluses from human excreta

Related departments in China collected nearly 5000 RMB bills from Shanghai, Chongquing, Guangshou, Nanjing and Dalian. On this currency samples were discoved 10 strains of bacteria, such as colon bacilluses, hepatitis B virus (HBV) , streptococcus, mold, salmonella, etc. Some doctors claimed that colon bacilluses came from human excreta. If people don't wash their hands after using the toilet and handle paper money right away- the money would be stained with bacteria.

Wash hands with soap before eating

Paper money and coins of all nations circulate.. They all got bacteria as they passed through people's hands. Regardless of nationality, color and creed- all currency got bacteria which pose danger to people's health. Thus- it is advised that washing hands before eating must be made a habit for obvious reasons. Children need parental guidance to develop the habit.
