Russian President Vladimir Putin is shielded from COVID-19 by a special disinfection chamber that anyone visiting his official residence outside Moscow must go through, RIA News Agency reported
The Special tunnel, devised by a Russian company, is situated in the town of Penza. It has been installed at his official Novo-Ogaryovo residents outside Moscow where he receives his guest.
In a footage published by RIA, some masked people are shown going through it while being sprayed with disinfectant from the ceiling and from the side.
The Russian news agency said that the disinfectant is a fine cloud of fluid that covered individuals’ clothes and exposed any upper body flesh.
Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesperson, said in April that anyone meeting Putin in person has to go through the test for corona virus. A month later, Peskov said he had himself been infected.
Russia has recorded more than 500,000 infections, the third highest number of cases in the world after Brazil and the United States, something it attributes to a huge testing programme.
