We were unable to get any Government minister to comment on these reports.

Our advice for the present is to avoid handling coins if at all possible, particularly twenty pences, and use protective gloves if it is necessary to handle as part of your job. You should always wash your hands after handling coins.
It is also advisable to stay alert, keep a cool head. If you feel any sensation of overheating, take a cold shower, and sit quietly in a cool, well ventilated room.
If you are aware of any old people who may be affected, try to check up on them to ensure they remain safe.
We will post further news bulletins as this strange situation develops.
