This is so stupid, but I guess I need to address this sooner than later.
There are 549,000 doctors in Russia. The suicide rate is 11.6/100,000 (Rosstat). So that’s 64 expected suicides per year, or 16 in a three month period.
Doctors are more educated than average, and less likely to binge drink. So perhaps commit suicide at less than the population average. OTOH, now are pretty stressful times for medical workers – I’m sure it more than cancels out.
What I’m saying is, four doctors dying from jumping out of windows doesn’t mean that Putler or one of his minions did it. Especially since one of them was a patient. While another survived, having jumped from the second floor.
True, what linked them all together was that they had issues with their bosses/managers – complaints over PPE availability, or the advisability of admitting COVID-19 patients to their hospital.
It doesn’t seem extraordinarily unlikely that the trigger for 2 out of the 16 expected “successful” suicides might have something to do with the coronavirus response.
EDIT: Commenter Mr. Hack points out that doctors commit suicide at a rate more than twice that of the general population in the US. If that applies to Russia, these events become even less of a mystery.
