A Russian nurse who went viral for wearing only lingerie under a see-through protective gown in a male coronavirus ward has become a TV weather presenter.
Nadia Zhukova, 23, was pictured in a transparent PPE as she gave patients their medicine back in May. She was initially disciplined for ‘non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing’ by hospital bosses who also threatened to fire her.
The nurse complained that she was ‘too hot’ in the hazmat gown and didn’t realise the PPE was so transparent.
Her punishment was later withdrawn after several Politicians defended her. At that time, politician Vitaly Milonov said: ‘No disciplinary methods should be imposed on the (nurse). There was no malicious intent…I’m sure she herself was embarrassed….
‘In no case should the girl be punished, I am sharply against this.’
Nadia has now been offered a role as weather presenter on her local TV station in Tula, south of Moscow, but will continue working as a nurse.
Speaking on her new TV role on Vesti Tula, she said: ‘It is a big thing for me. Thank you for letting me try.
‘My parents will watch, in the evening, after work.’
Earlier, she was also offered a role as a model for a Russian sportswear brand, Miss X lingerie but rejected the offer to focus on her medical career.
