The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has impacted millions of lives in many different ways. As the world looks to get back on track by overcoming the pandemic, trusted nitrile gloves brand Yanimed discusses the importance of nitrile gloves.
March 29, 2021
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the global COVID-19 epidemics as a pandemic. Since then, there have been close to 120 million COVID-19 cases globally and more than 2.6 million COVID-19-related deaths. One year down the line, with the creation of several potent vaccines, a Covid 19-free world may not be very far. However, Malta-based brand Yanimed strongly believes that the use of nitrile gloves will be extremely important even in the post-pandemic healthcare sector.
Though COVID-19’s main way of transmission is symptomatic person-to-person through respiratory droplets, hand-to-face contact has a substantial role in upper respiratory tract infections. This is why gloves are strongly recommended when caring for confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients, especially when there is the risk of contact with body fluids.
Out of many different types of gloves available in the market, nitrile gloves are highly preferred these days because of many reasons. Many professions rely on the durability of nitrile gloves, especially during exposure to blood borne pathogens and other environmental contaminants are of concern. These gloves are more puncture-resistant compared to latex and are more chemical resistant compared to latex or vinyl. Also, being latex-free, these gloves can be used safely by individuals with latex allergy.
Yanimed feels that the pandemic has pushed the demand for gloves to extraordinary levels. Since the breakout of Covid-19, there has been a significantly higher use of personal protective gears like gowns, coveralls, aprons, lab coats, bouffant caps, respirators, masks, shoe covers, and gloves. The pandemic has undoubtedly led to a higher demand for healthcare services and products. Moreover, a further boost in healthcare spending and healthcare-related products is anticipated over the next few years because of an increasing geriatric population.
It is also anticipated by Yanimed that the demand for nitrile gloves in the healthcare sector will be augmented because of rising mass awareness about the safety and health measures related to the pandemic as well as treatment of patients. Furthermore, apprehensions about blood-borne pathogen transmission will lead to a much higher use of protective globes in medical facilities.
“Right now, the global market for nitrile gloves is propelling because of rapidly increasing hygiene awareness the medical sector and a growing ageing population. With stringent health regulations in place all over the world, the demand for nitrile gloves is likely to increase by leaps and bounds in the near future,” said a senior spokesperson from Yanimed.
A brand owned and managed by Blokkx Ltd. based in Malta, Yanimed offers high-quality nitrile gloves that are later-free, skin-friendly, tear-resistant, and highly elastic. These single use examination gloves are also well suited for use in emergency services.
