Abstract / Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has impeded the global supply of nitrile gloves, causing mass shortages, scams, fraud, and chaos. The nitrile glove shortage has presented the U.S. with a humanitarian crisis. U.S. hospitals, nursing homes, dental practices, first responders, the entire healthcare system is in peril. Health workers are scared to provide care because they lack the necessary protective nitrile gloves. The U.S. reliance on importation of nitrile gloves has left the nation susceptible, and victim too, the major portion of global fraud and scams. The COVID-19 pandemic, combined with deficient domestic manufacturing, and lacking federal guidance has placed the United States in a humanitarian crisis. The U.S. shortage of nitrile gloves and PPE, represents “a gap in our national security (Rep. Stephen Lynch, 2021)”.
