Two nurses in São Carlos city in Brazil’s state of São Paulo have come up with a new way to help isolated patients fight Covid-19: latex gloves filled with warm water. They are known as “little hands of love” among health care workers who say the warm latex gloves provide emotional support at the same time they increase a patient's blood flow. Brazil now faces a collapse of its health care service as Covid-19 cases surge in the country where almost 14 million cases and more than 370,000 deaths were reported as of April 19, 2021.
