Sorry for the cliche, but this story is about a really, really hot nurse.
A medical worker on the front lines of our war against COVID-19 recently realized her required ultra-protective all-vinyl gown was just too unbearably unbreathable.
Therefore, to fight off fever, she lessened her layers.
In an effort to stay cooler while she tended to patients — in the all-male coronavirus wing of her Russian hospital — the compassionate caregiver decided to show up for shift work in only a bra and panties under her see-through pandemic poncho.
A photo found its way to the web:
“The unidentified staffer told her managers at Tula Regional Clinical Hospital that she was “too hot” to wear clothing underneath the head-to-toe vinyl gown… The nurse claimed she did not realize that her underwear was showing through the PPE.”https://t.co/Y7oMGi0YZx

According to the story — first relayed by local newspaper Tula Pressa — the twenty-something told her supervisors at the Tula Regional Clinical Hospital she was unaware everyone could see her nearly-naked.
Unfortunately, the viral spread of the vaguely-veiled vixen preceded the regional health ministry announcing she’d been disciplined for her display:
“A disciplinary sanction was applied to the nurse of the infectious diseases department who violated (uniform) requirements.”
Initially, the hospital reported the overheating attendant was clad in “lingerie” beneath her PPE, but it was later clarified the minimal material may have been a bikini.
That’s reassuring — after all, words for things change what those things are.
Amid the controversy — as observed by the New York Post — the Tula Pressa story caught its share of comments:
“At least someone has a sense of humor in this gloomy, gloomy reality,”
“Well done, she raised the mood of the patients.”
“Why punish the nurse? You need to reward her. Seeing this outfit, no one wants to die.”
For those of you troubled by such a disrespectful and — dare I say — disturbing stunt among men already suffering so substantially, you’ll be glad to know that, as per the paper, despite the young nurse’s gaffe, there were “no complaints” from any of the men in lockdown.
Good on them for their grace. After all, as the poor girl told her bosses, “I was too hot.”
As she fully re-covers, here’s hoping they do, too.
