An Israeli woman burns 2,900 euros from her tenant for fear of the Corona virus | a stranger

An Israeli real estate agent heated banknotes from one of his tenants in a bowl of bleach in the microwave, for fear of contracting the coronavirus. Since the notes contained metal strips, they caught fire. The amount has since been repaid by the National Bank of Israel.




The woman wanted to clear the banknotes, and later explained to the bank. Its value was about 2,900 euros. “I feel very guilty because this is not my money and I am an honest citizen who will never spoil money,” the 74-year-old said in a letter she sent to the bank with 70 notes.

He examined the remains and determined that they were indeed real money. The bank decided to exchange the money and return it to the woman. A spokesman for the bank said that the financial institution replaces the thousands of banknotes that are damaged every year. “But we’ve never had a case where banknotes were boiled.”

According to health experts, the chance of contracting the Corona virus through banknotes or coins is very small.
