Shulepov’s fall on the night of May 1 came about a week after he complained in a video posted to social media that he and a paramedic colleague had been forced to keep working even after he tested positive for the coronavirus. “What shall we do in such a situation?” the paramedic, Aleksander Kosyakin, asked in the video posted on Instagram. Three days later, local news website Vesti Voronezh said Shulepov had recanted the allegations, saying he and Kosyakin’s remarks were driven by emotion. Kosyakin was reportedly threatened with criminal charges for spreading “fake news” about the virus. Another senior female doctor, Elena Nepomnyashchaya, reportedly fell from a hospital window two days later, on April 26, in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk. She died of her injuries several days later.
