MOSCOW, October 5 (RAPSI) – A court in Russia’s Vologda Region has fined a local man 20,000 rubles for going on a business trip when being infected with coronavirus despite a medical ban, RAPSI has learnt from the press service of the regional courts.

In June, the man tested positive for COVID-19 and was ordered to self-isolation until recovery. A few days later it was revealed that he was not at home and therefore violated legislative requirements and sanitary provisions, the statement reads.

The administrative defendant objected to the court decision insisting that he failed to infect any other person and claiming that doctors muddled up the analysis.
