Six million pairs of medical gloves in U.S. were stolen by thieves in 3 minutes cost about 1 million USD

October 27. According to a report by the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on the 27th, a burglary occurred in a

Florida hospital in the United States. The thieves stole over 6 million pairs of

medical gloves with a total value of up to 1 million US dollars.

According to reports, on October 23, local time, Medgluv, a supplier of medical gloves for the national healthcare industry in

United States, received the shipment at its office store in Coral Springs and placed it in the

parking lot outside the warehouse. 

On the evening of the 25th, surveillance video showed that several men loaded the gloved

container onto a freight truck and then fled quickly. The whole process took only three to four minutes.

Rick Grimes, vice president of marketing and sales at Medgluv, said: “Every day hospitals ask us to provide these products. No matter how you look at it, it’s heartbreaking.”

He did not elaborate whether the theft was accidental or What the insiders do.

According to reports, since this medical-grade testing glove is registered by the federal government, the local police and the FBI have launched an investigation. 

Grimes said that not only the company suffered heavy losses, but it also hindered hospitals that needed gloves and affected the

company’s role in health care.
