For most surfaces the flu virus can live up to 48 hours but for the paper that the dollar bills and other paper money is made from the flu virus can reportedly live up to 17 full days on the dollar bill or other paper money.

Handling dollar bills and other paper money is a way to catch all sorts of germs and the flu virus but we don't think anything of it.
