The entire world is going through a bad patch due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During this crisis, even irresponsible acts have also been happening behind the scenes.
In what could be termed as a bizarre incident in Indonesia, a nurse was suspended after she confessed to stripping off her PPE in order to have sex with a COVID-infected man, in a hospital toilet.
This bizarre incident has surfaced when the country is still fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. The incident took place inside a toilet of the Wisma Atlet quarantine facility located in Jakarta and came to light after the patient boasted about the good time on social media platform. After the post spread like wildfire, the man was interrogated along with the nurse that he allegedly had sex with.
Meanwhile, the officials added that they could be subjected to criminal prosecution under Indonesia’s pornography laws albeit the post in itself was not ‘pornographic’. The incident happened in coronavirus field hospital in Indonesia.
Both of them admitted the story was true and that it happened in the toilet after the nurse removed her PPE. As per various reports, the nurse was plying her trade at the Wisma Atlet quarantine facility in Jakarta, Indonesia.
As the deadly coronavirus spreads through droplets, sexual intercourse, even intimacy such as kissing is strictly prohibited in case one is experiencing symptoms associated with coronavirus.
Later, both of them were arrested by Central Jakarta Police under the country’s strict pornography laws after the incident became widely shared and mocked on social media in Indonesia.
In Indonesia alone, the confirmed positive cases of coronavirus have surpassed 7 lakh so far, while at least 21,000 people have died in the country from the infection.
In case you didn’t know: Nine Nurses working at the Same Hospital are ‘Pregnant together’
Maine hospital, which is the largest in Portland where 9 of the nurses ‘working in the labour and delivery unit of the same hospital’ are expecting babies in the next couple of months.
A Facebook post put out by Maine Medical Centre depicts nine pregnant ladies posing for a photograph and all the babies are scheduled to be born between April and July.
Interestingly, the women were seen holding cards in a variety of colours like pink, blue, yellow and green, and they said they were happy to be able to experience their pregnancies altogether.
“After each one of us started to say, ‘We’re pregnant,’ I think it was a happier announcement each time, and we’re all there for each other,” nurse Erin Grenier told WMTV.
“There have been times where we’ve been the patient. So it’s been great to have each other either being our nurse or just being there for us, sending us a message, checking in on us making sure everything is okay,” she added.
Another nurse identified as Amanda Spear said, “It’s really nice coming to work and seeing other people who are just as pregnant and watching their bellies pop and just talking about these experiences that we are going through together.”
“I think we’re looking forward to raising our babies together. To having friends, playdates and continuing the support of having shared experiences of all having babies together,” registered nurse Holly Selby said.
The women were stunned to see so much attention given to them on social media platforms.
“I don’t think it hit home until we took a picture and it was on social media and we were getting all this attention,” registered nurse Lonnie Soucie added. “And then it was like, ‘Whoa, you weren’t kidding!’”
“I think we’re looking forward to raising our babies together. To having friends, playdates and continuing the support of having shared experiences of all having babies together,” Holly Selby said.
The hospital confirmed that the shifts would be ‘totally covered’ for the duration of their maternity leave.
