It’s an ILLUSION
Do you know how to tell whether a restaurant cares about hygiene? Just check to see whether the chefs wear gloves or not. Latex gloves are the universal symbol of cleanliness, but does it deserve to be? According to the OP, who has used common sense to justify their answer, no.
In fact, wearing latex gloves can spread germs more quickly than not wearing gloves. Nobody washes their hands while wearing gloves, so all the germs and bacteria on the gloves go from utensil to utensil, plate to plate. Plus, people do a lot of sweating under those gloves, which can leak onto their forearms and drip onto your plate. Yummy.
