Should I be wearing gloves?

Are gloves really effective in avoiding covid-19?


No, gloves are not effective.


  • Latex gloves are not durable for everyday activities- they can tear.
  • You have to take the gloves off at some point in the day
  • The gloves can have a build up of bacteria as you make contact with multiple surfaces which have not been disinfected.
  • You might absent-mindedly make contact with your eyes, nose or mouth while the gloves are on, putting you at risk.

Most importantly, gloves should not be used as an alternative to washing your hands regularly and using hand sanitizer.
