According to the prosecutor's office of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District (YNAD), a local court sentenced a resident of the region to six months in a general regime colony for escaping from a coronavirus hospital in the city of Labytnangi in the west of the region.

The incident itself happened at the turn of spring and summer. According to the investigation, the defendant was hospitalized on May 27. Knowing about the revealed positive test result for the coronavirus COVID-19, he escaped from the hospital through the window of the second floor, without even taking a mask with him.
