The images disseminated on social networks show patients surprised to see the nurse at the Tula Regional Clinical Hospital. Nothing catches the attention of his face, which has him covered with a mask and a visor. The funny thing is that he wears a transparent protective suit, under which you can see that he only wears underwear.
Russian media reported that the nurse's name is Nadia and she is 23 years old. When her bosses asked for explanations, she said the protective suit was too hot and she could only resist it in her underwear.. The case could have been an extravagance for the young woman, but hospital doctors emphatically supported her and denounced that the authorities do not provide them with adequate clothing.
"We have nothing to wear", a doctor told him - without revealing his name for fear of retaliation - at the Komsomolskaya Pravda. "There are not enough units of the suits that according to the norms we must wear under the protective gown (...) Believe me, we would not go naked if they gave us a complete game ”.
The nurse was severely reprimanded after her images went viral. The portal Tulskaya Pressa revealed that they forced her to close her accounts on social networks and that the hospital authorities sanctioned her for "not complying with the dress requirements".
"I fully support the nurse," said a doctor who works in the same room as Nadia. "It is very hot when wearing these suits for a long time (...) He did not deserve any punishment. He probably realized that the suit was transparent, but he decided to dress like this anyway because it is very difficult to be in these suits for many hours. "
Many questioned the attitude of the patient who took pictures and published them on social networks.. “The most important thing is that she was helping the sick with coronavirus. It was not at all good for a patient to take a photo of him, "said a colleague of Nadia's.
Russia announced on Friday a new record of the number of deaths from coronavirus in a single day, with 150 victims, although the epidemic remains stable in number of new infections. Altogether 3,249 people have died since the pandemic began in Russia, according to official statistics. The country registered 8,894 new infections in 24 hours for a total of 326,448 detected cases.
The situation of the world's largest country varies by region. Moscow is the epicenter of the epidemic and in Dagestan, a poor republic of the Caucasus, there is a health "catastrophe" that forced the authorities to react.
The situation seems, however, stable and for several days the number of new infections has remained below 9,000. On Wednesday, for the first time, the country registered a drop in the number of patients (-633). In total, the number of people considered to be cured was 99,825, with a total of 223,374 active patients. There are several Russian officials who have contracted COVID-19, such as several ministers and deputies. The most prominent are Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, already healed, and Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov.
