THE STORY. Three Russian doctors working to treat Covid-19 patients have mysteriously fallen out of hospital windows in recent weeks. Two of them died and the other is in critical condition.
We don’t know but they have one thing in common: they criticized Russia’s response to the virus and protested about the lack of protective equipment.
- Suicide: it is a plausible theory, as suicide is a persistent national problem.
- Work pressure: one of them had said he was forced to finish his shift despite being diagnosed with COVID-19.
- Assassination: is the government killing people who speak out about the failures of the country’s health system?
The Russian police is investigating the deaths, but we might never know the right answer.
