She is now fighting for her life in intensive care after the fifth floor fall but medics are "refusing to talk" about her chances of survival, TVK Krasnoyarsk reported.

The respected doctor was on a call with Minister of Health for the Krasnoyarsk region Boris Nemik on Saturday at the time of the fall.

She is thought to have been against the plan because of a shortage of protective equipment for doctors.

Krasnoyarsk is capital city of the second largest region in the Russian Federation.

The tragedy follows other reports that doctors in a number of Russian regions have quit their jobs in protest over a lack of PPE. »
