Coronavirus: Should you actually wear gloves when shopping?
If you've seen a lot of people wearing gloves while shopping and listened to, like each of us, the authorities sending official messages on how to protect ourselves from the spread of coronavirus, you probably already wonder if you should do that when you go shopping.
Many of the few people we meet these days usually wear either surgical gloves or household gloves, or even crocheted gloves when shopping. But is it true that you are safer if you are wearing shopping gloves?
Experts say that the supermarket is not necessarily among the most dangerous places you can be in these days, and some specialists even go so far as to claim that wearing gloves when shopping is really doing you more harm than good.
First of all, this is because gloves behave exactly like your hands without gloves. The new coronavirus does not reach our bodies through our hands - so this is not where we need to protect ourselves. If we touch a contaminated surface on the drops of another person, and then touch anything else, we can only spread the virus, whether or not we have gloves. Indeed, experts warn, it is very likely that the virus will adhere to a latex surface rather than to human skin. And the skin is immediately washed with soap and water, which you may not have been tempted to do as soon as you enter the house after wearing gloves for shopping, but which is essential for prevention.
And that is precisely the problem with wearing gloves for shopping or anywhere else these days. That they can give you a vague sense of security, which is not at all justified. And if you go to more places and touch more things that you do not necessarily need to touch, just because you feel protected, it is very possible to spread the virus. Just think that if you go shopping with your bare hands, you probably wipe them with a pocket disinfectant or an alcohol wipe before you go, say, and at the pharmacy.
And then, public health experts warn, most of us do not know how to properly remove our gloves, as health professionals would do, much more familiar with these hygiene rituals. Even medical staff have difficulty in accurately following the steps to ensure that they are protected.
