Many medicos have even alleged that they have been threatened with dismissal or even prosecution if they will be going public with their grievances. Hundreds of health workers have also been infected due to coronavirus.

Dr. Alexander Shulepov, who works with an ambulance crew in the Voronezh Region, 500 kilometers (310 miles) south of Moscow, fell from a second-floor window May 2 at a hospital where he was being treated for Wuhan coronavirus which resulted in breaking several ribs and fracturing his skull.
