The third Russian doctor plunges from COVID-19 hospital window

A third Russian doctor has plunged from a hospital window after complaining about medics facing intolerable coronavirus pressures.


Alexander Shulepov, 37, is fighting for his life with head injuries after taking part in a video which claimed he was ordered to work despite testing positive for COVID-19.


He and colleagues also warned about PPE shortages in Voronezh city. Later - lying in a coronavirus hospital bed - Shulepov made a second video to retract the claims amid suspicions he was pressured to do so.


On Saturday, while being treated at Novousmanskaya district hospital, the experienced ambulance doctor plunged from a second floor window sustaining skull fractures. He is now in a grave condition.
