In the private assisted living house for the elderly Trust in Yakutsk, 15 people, including guests and employees, fell ill with a new coronavirus infection. The prosecutor's office said that the outbreak occurred due to non-compliance with sanitary and epidemiological rules in the institution.

According to the materials of the department, a criminal case was initiated under part 1 of art. 236 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules, resulting in negligence of a mass disease of citizens).

However, later all other guests and employees of the institution tested on COVID-19 gave negative results.
