Researchers took swabs from the key pads on numerous ATMs in England in popular shopping centers and found some shocking results — that ATM key pads are disgusting.
After analyzing the swabs in a lab overnight, the researchers found that they contained bacteria that can cause sickness and diarrhea.
Said a researcher:
”We were surprised by our results because the ATM machines were shown to be heavily contaminated with bacteria; to the same level as nearby public lavatories.”
Ugh, this is really sick! Make sure to wash your hands after using an ATM!
