ATMs could transmit many diseases

The ubiquitous automated teller machine (ATM), may have made our lives a lot easier. But now latest research says that ATM s could become potential vehicle for many contagious diseases. It is said that the keypad may be loaded with bacterias from spoiled food to parasites that may also cause s – – x-ually transmitted disease (STDs). Automated teller machine (ATM) keypads represent a specific and unexplored microhabitat for microbial communities. “Our results suggest that ATM keypads integrate microbes from different sources, including the human microbiome, foods, and potentially novel environmental organisms adapted to air or surfaces,” said Jane Carlton, Professor at New York University, US.
