Recently a person has used gloves to handle lots of garbage in dumpsters and then shortly after used those same gloves to handle plates and a sponge for dishwasher in my kitchen. After that those plates were used for eating (once) as was the sponge for washing. Is there a possibility of any serious infectious disease from this? There were no obvious stains on the plates and sponge or smells, but those gloves touched some really filthy and disgusting things!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There is possibility of water borne diseases like cholera, typhoid and parasitic infestation.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
