The Hot Zone

What rhetorical device is used in the following lines? What is the effect? What is it trying to show

"People wearing biohazard suits tend to step around one another like two wrestlers at the beginning of a match, watching the other person's every move, especially watching the hands to make sure they don't hold a sharp object. This cringing becomes instinctive. (252-253).
