JOHANNESBURG - Banks are racing to get ATM machines in line with COVID-19 regulations.
This comes after government took a hard line about them providing hand sanitisers at all cash machines.
It has warned that the auto tellers are super-spreaders of the coronavirus.
Banks that fail to comply face penalties but several are saying that meeting the updated regulations will be a gigantic logistical exercise.
They say they may have to close some machines but emphasise they have no problems adhering to the new rules.
