Russian President Vladimir Putin installed a “disinfection tunnel” at one of his official residences to keep him from contracting COVID-19.
According to the report, the tunnel has been installed at the president’s residence in Novo-Ogaryovo, where he is currently working.
The President’s suburban residence is just outside Moscow. He preferred it as a remote working office in order to avoid traffic congestion in the capital.
Meanwhile, the report stated that anyone entering the residence has to pass through the chamber that uses a fine mist of disinfectant solution that covers clothing and exposed areas of the body.
Further, Russian company Mizo Safe made the disinfection tunnel. However, they did not report any specific date of installation.
President Putin, 67, remains virus-free despite exposure to several people in his inner circle.
Prime Minister Mikhail Mishutin and Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov tested positive in April. Meanwhile, in March, a Russian doctor who shook Putin’s hand the week before became positive with the virus.
In April, the spokesperson said anyone who wanted to have face-to-face contact with the President would have to be tested first.
As of July, Russia remains as the third country with the most reported COVID-19 cases. There are 680,283 who tested positive with 10,145 reported deaths.
