A nurse has been reprimanded for wearing a bikini under transparent PPE.



The unnamed medic was photographed on a coronavirus ward for male patients in Russia wearing the skimpy outfit under her protective equipment and was summoned by her bosses after they spotted the picture online.

She was called into a meeting where she claimed that she was too hot wearing her normal uniform under the transparent PPE, and also said that she was unaware of how transparent the protective clothing was.

The regional health ministry said that the nurse had been given a reprimand, although its exact nature was unknown.

A statement read: ''A disciplinary sanction was applied to the nurse of the infectious diseases department who violated (uniform) requirements.''

A patient said that he had no problem with her attire, although it has caused ''some embarrassment''.
