The novel coronavirus is now a public health emergency worldwide and there is currently no vaccine that can protect people from it. The best way to prevent illness is to simply avoid being exposed to the virus which spreads from person to person.

At the moment, there’s no cure or vaccine for coronavirus and medical specialists can only treat the symptoms of the disease. We can only prevent the spread of coronavirus. Frequent handwashing with soap is the easiest way to kill the virus. By doing this, you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

As the number of cases tick up in the Philippines, some are going cashless to avoid potential hygiene issues around handling banknotes. Some experts have said COVID-19 could latch onto currency the same way it is able to survive on other frequently touched surfaces, such as keyboards, mobile phones, staircase railings, door handles, etc. Like any other surfaces that large numbers of people come in contact with, notes can carry bacteria or viruses. If a person is infected, a transaction involving cash will involve a potential fomite, or a contaminated object passed from one person to another.

Cash transactions could also help spread COVID-19, the coronavirus disease, according to the World Health Organization. “The virus could stay on money for days after exposure, and people should wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after handling cash. Instead, people should use contactless payments whenever possible.” 

Fortunately, GCash offers an alternative way to pay your bills that is fast, secure, and can be done easily using your smartphone while staying at home with just a few taps on your smartphone. From utilities to government fees, you can choose to pay over 400 billers nationwide for little to no extra fees.
