In the Nizhny Novgorod region, a woman with diabetes was treated for coronavirus. As a result, the patient died, reports the publication “Rise” with reference to the daughter of the deceased.
According to the interlocutor of the publication, the family of Natalia Samoilova wanted to apply to the prosecutor’s office, but documents important for the investigation were “lost and rewritten.” “The autopsy showed that my mother’s lungs were clear, that she didn’t have any coronavirus, but died of diabetes,” said the patient’s daughter and added that she wants justice.
Regional Health Minister David Melik-Huseynov said that a check is being carried out on the fact of the woman’s death. According to him, it is not entirely correct to base judgments on opinion only from a video message.
“When such episodes occur, we in any case launch an examination that does not depend on the work of a particular medical organization,” the minister added.
