Three Russian doctors mysteriously fall from hospital windows over the past two weeks. Two of those health care workers are dead, and one remains hospitalized in critical condition, according to local news reports.
The circumstances of those three health care workers are being investigated by Russian police.
On Tuesday, Russia confirmed 10,102 new coronavirus infections. The total number has reached 155,370 coronavirus cases and 1,451 deaths.
Aleksander Shulepov, 37, an emergency doctor in Voronezh, fractured his skull and broke multiple ribs in serious condition after falling from the second floor of a hospital window on Saturday.
Shulepov and his colleague Alexander Kosyakin posted a video online saying that Shulepov had been forced to continue working after testing positive for coronavirus. Kosyakin was reportedly threatened with criminal charges for spreading “fake news” about the virus but he confirmed these details to CNN in an interview. Three days later, Shulepov said that in his video with Kosyakin was made while he was “overwhelmed by emotions.”
In a statement published by the hospital said that Shulepov had been taken off a shift as soon as he informed the administration about his Covid-19 positive diagnosis. He was offered hospitalization in the infectious diseases ward, the statement said.
