Banking in the Time of Corona

2 June 2020

Covid-19 is an infectious disease, first identified in December 2019 in Chinese province Hubei, has rapidly spread across the globe, hitting Europe in February - March 2020. European countries have applied various anti-covid measures, including quarantines and lockdowns, introducing social distancing rules and travel restrictions, promoting personal hygiene, closing public crowded places, for example edicational and recreational centers.

Banks, however, continued serving their customers in branches, although in some countries the opening time of the branches was changed and selected branches were closed. People were also advised to use payment cards instead of cash. Data below shows the number of Covid-19 cases per bank branch and per ATM. There are several options to keep using banking services while avoiding exposure to Covid-19 by visiting bank branches or using ATMs:
