The head of the HRC asked Rospotrebnadzor to justify the need for gloves in public places

Valery Fadeev, Chairman of the Human Rights Council under the President of the Russian Federation (HRC), asked the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, to explain whether people who do not work in food and services need gloves in public places, Interfax reports.

He noted that a number of experts consider the requirement for mandatory wearing of disposable gloves in public places, established in some regions of the Russian Federation, to be "controversial", since the very long wearing of gloves contributes to the emergence of a moist environment on the hands, favorable for bacteria and viruses.

"It should also be borne in mind that many citizens, especially the older generation, many times exceed the permissible period of wearing gloves, increasing the number of bacteria accumulated on them," Fadeev Popova said in a letter published by the press service of the HRC on Friday.

Fadeev asked Popova to send Rospotrebnadzor's position on this issue to the HRC.
