Nurse treating Covid-19 patients in Russia goes viral for wearing lingerie in transparent PPE in male ward


A nurse in her 20s has gone viral for wearing lingerie in a transparent personal protective equipment (PPE) while treating Covid-19 patients in the male ward of a hospital in Russia.

The nurse whose excuse was that she was feeling hot at the time and that she didn’t realize the PPE was transparent has now been disciplined by the hospital, Tula Regional Clinical Hospital, and the regional health  regional ministry.

The revealing picture was taken by a COVID-19 patient in a male ward in Tula, south of Russian capital Moscow. According to him, there were ‘no complaints’ from fellow patients.


One patient said there was no objection from men in the coronavirus ward while admitting there was ‘some embarrassment’.

A reader of local newspaper Tula News congratulated the nurse. ‘At least someone has a sense of humour in this gloomy, gloomy reality,’ said Sergey Ratnikov.

A woman commenter Marina Astakhova posted: ‘Well done, she raised the mood of the patients.’

And Valery Kapnin wrote: ‘Why punish the nurse, you need to reward her. ‘Seeing this outfit, no-one wants to die.’
