Russian TB patients carried corpses out of clinic

TB patients in the Russian Far East city of Khabarovsk were forced to carry corpses from the TB clinic themselves, regional Prosecutor General’s Office said on Tuesday.

According to prosecutors, clinic staff asked patients for help carrying the bodies out of the hospital in what is viewed as a grave violation of sanitary regulations.

Prosecutors launched an investigation into the goings on at the clinic after a video showing patients carrying corpses appeared on the Internet in May.

The clinic’s top officials will be brought to administrative responsibility, the regional prosecutor’s general office said.
