Tens of millions of used gloves from Thailand ended up in US pharmacies

Gloves covered in blood were dyed blue and sent for sale.

Tens of millions of used medical gloves were brought to the United States from Thailand. Dirty nitrile gloves with traces of blood and waste were collected, washed and tinted with blue paint.

The demand for disposable medical gloves has increased significantly since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Glove fraud can reach billions of dollars.

Despite the fact that the authorities of the United States and Thailand are conducting criminal investigations into the revealed facts, millions of used personal protective equipment may still be in warehouses in America.

It is not yet possible to fully understand the problem, since due to the pandemic in the United States, a temporary relaxation of the rules for the import of medical equipment was introduced.

Due to the extraordinary growth in demand for nitrile gloves, rather than latex or vinyl, fly-by-night firms began to appear in Southeast Asia, which decided to capitalize on the problem.
