While wearing rubber gloves may make you feel more safe against coming in contact with the virus, the truth is it does nothing against the spread. That's according to the World Health Organization officials who say "when it comes to preventing the spread of the virus, gloved hands offer no advantage over bare hands. The COVID-19 virus can still be picked up on rubber gloves and transmitted by touching your face." They also shared that people who don't wear gloves are less likely to contract the virus because they are more prone to washing their hands more frequently. WHO stresses the importance of washing your hands, saying “Regularly washing bare hands is more effective against catching COVID-19 than wearing rubber gloves."
