Nadezhda has become a symbol of the Covid-19 era. This young, beautiful and brave girl has made a contribution to the fight against the virus. We will invite her to take part in our social programs ZaHelp which we launched in March. Also we are ready to provide Tula hospital where Nadezhda is working with all the necessary help,” Zadorina said.

Zhukova earned international fame after a photo of her wearing bikini a sheer plastic protective suit was shared on social media. She decided to take off her scrubs since she felt overheated wearing protective clothing all day.

The regional health authorities reprimanded the nurse, noting that she had violated guidelines. However, Zhukova received wide support from fellow Russian women, who also posed in swimsuits and Covid-19 protective gear in her defense.

Everyone knows my story, but I have never strived to become popular,” Zhukova said. “I have other priorities in my life. I want health workers to be respected. I really wish our job would be appreciated not only during the pandemic”
