Best Russian dentist, 35, dives 90 feet to death from ninth floor of Covid ward – .


A prominent female dentist has died from a Covid hospital on the ninth floor – days after her parents died from the virus.

Darya Khorovskaya, 35, a well-respected Russian orthodontist, was found alive but later died of her injuries in St. Petersburg, according to reports.

It has since been revealed that her mother, Professor Lina Khorovskaya, 58, an internationally recognized expert in clinical diagnostics, had died from Covid four days earlier.

His father Oleg Khorovsky, 58, the head of a leading private dental hospital, also died after contracting coronavirus in late September.

The fall follows a wave of similar deaths of Russian doctors during the pandemic.

She was found alive but later died of her injuries at a hospital in St. Petersburg, Russia, according to reports.

The tragic orthodontist was close to both parents and devastated by their deaths, other patients in his department at Elizavetinskaya Hospital said.

Dr Khorovskaya was reportedly “deeply depressed” at their loss.

She fell from a ninth floor window 90 feet high, according to reports, and suffered multiple injuries.

She had been admitted to hospital with “complications” from Covid-19 two days after the death of her mother.

Dr Khorovskaya – who worked at her father’s clinic – was found alive and rushed to intensive care, but doctors were unable to save her.

Her father opened the first international standard dental surgery after the fall of communism and worked in the United States.

Her mother was a long-time member of the American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC).

It was not known if the family had been stung for Covid-19.

Their deaths come as Russia experiences its worst rate of Covid-19 infections and deaths, official figures show.

Sunday’s deaths were reported at 997, but had passed the 1,000 per day mark for the first time last week. Some 34,303 new infections have been reported.

The high official death rate – which some experts say underscores the real toll – comes despite Russia being the first country in the world to approve a vaccine to fight Covid-19.

Dr Khorovskaya’s fall brings back concerns from the start of the pandemic over a number of Covid-19 patients and doctors who had jumped to death from hospitals.

In June 2020, police forensic expert Lt. Col. Natalya Shcherbakova, 45, was fatally injured after falling from a window of a fifth-floor hospital in Moscow.

She was put on life support but later died, according to police sources.

Dr Khorovskaya’s fall brings back concerns from the start of the pandemic over a number of Covid-19 patients and doctors who had jumped to death from hospitals. Last year, 48-year-old Dr Natalya Lebedeva (left) plunged 60 feet to her death from the sixth floor of a Moscow hospital.

Reports of her death came after two Russian female doctors sustained fatal injuries after falling from hospital windows.

Dr Natalya Lebedeva, 48, dived 60 feet to death from the sixth floor of a Moscow hospital after colleagues said she was unfairly blamed for the spread of the coronavirus at her Star City clinic , near Moscow, the training center for cosmonauts.

She had been infected with Covid-19.

Dr Yelena Nepomnyashchaya, 47, a mother of two from a medical family, suffered fatal injuries after falling 60 feet from a window at her hospital in Krasnoyarsk in Siberia.

Colleagues said she complained of an “acute shortage” of personal protective equipment for doctors and nurses.
