Russian officials have sanctioned a nurse for wearing a bikini underneath a transparent protective suit while treating COVID-19 patients.
Rossiiskaya Gazeta on Wednesday reported that the unnamed nurse, who is under the employ of a state hospital in the central Tula region, just south of Moscow, appears to have been candidly photographed as she tended to patients in the get-up.
The said nurse was pictured with covered head to foot in protective garb and face mask and visor to compliment.
The nurse reportedly claimed she wore the bikini because she was too warm when fully clothed under the protective suit.
A spokesperson for the regional medical authorities said the nurse had been reprimanded, without elaborating on the incident.
