In a bid to protect oneself from coming into contact with the deadly coronavirus, most people especially Ghanaians have resorted to wearing gloves in public.

This action of theirs is obviously to prevent coming into contact with the virus should they be exposed to it.

The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research has however expressed their misgivings about the rate at which Ghanaians go about public places in latex gloves.

In a tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh, Noguchi said, "Hand gloves are not to be worn in public. You are likely to spread the virus should you get exposed to it."
