A man spat at this policewoman’s face. She contracted tuberculosis and died seven months later.
She was 35-year-old and her name was Arina Koltsova. She was doing her job and arresting a man. He got angry and spat into her face. She did not know he was carrying tuberculosis at the time
She eventually collapsed at work after ignoring many symptoms of tuberculosis.
Arina later died from complications associated with tuberculosis. Two days later she was buried.
It is unclear if Koltsova’s case was resistant or simply caught too late for treatment to be effective. It is also unclear if the criminal will face charges for murder or manslaughter.
This is beyond terrible.
