This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
The gloves are coming off in the fight against dangerous myths surrounding the coronavirus.
Despite no recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to do so, shoppers continue to wear gloves in public places, such as grocery stores. The gesture has left doctors and health experts shaking their heads — not only are the gloves ineffective, they may be worsening the spread of COVID-19.
The virus primarily spreads through our mouth, not our hands, so there’s no evidence that gloves do anything to protect people from picking up the illness. The risk is when people touch their faces, which they do with and without gloves, says Marilyn Roberts, a microbiologist and professor at the University of Washington’s Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences.
The report warns the people could actually be spreading the virus more by using the gloves, then not disposing of them properly.
The most important thing to do is wash your hands with soap and water immediately after going to the store, the report says.
Why wearing surgical gloves is unnecessary: Your skin is not a point of entry for Covid19. So why make the effort & waste $? Putting impenetrable gloves on top of impenetrable skin is ridiculous. It does nothing. Just wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
