SF Gate: The upcoming nitrile glove shortage could be way worse than the mask shortage

SF Gate: The upcoming nitrile glove shortage could be way worse than the mask shortage. “In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, a nitrile glove shortage may not seem as dire as a mask shortage. After all, no virus can ‘drill through the skin on your hand,’ and masks are still the best safety precaution for most people. However, these gloves are still a necessity for medical professionals, tattoo artists, food servers, and mechanics. Plus, they have various at-home uses including gardening, cleaning, and safety precautions for the immunocompromised. Right now, our supplies are dwindling — and the United States currently has no domestic manufacturers.”
