A Russian women fried almost $1,000 in the microwave to disinfect them against coronavirus
A Russian woman ended up burning 65 thousand rubles (around 830 USD) when she microwaved the bills to disinfect them as a precaution against Covid-19.
The Muscovite was frightened of the possible transmission of infection and decided to place them in the microwave. Spoiler: it would be better to wash. The published photograph captures 65 thousand rubles lying on the table. Some notes have dark spots, and some were completely burnt.
What you just won’t do to save yourself from infection! The Muscovite decided to get rid of possible viruses and germs on paper as follows - "fried" them in the microwave.
On this sad experience, the Russian woman said on her Instagram page: Have you ever sanitized money in the microwave? I haven’t, but some people have. So, as she said: “I already did that, disinfection from the coronavirus, I just kept it in the microwave,” ”the girl wrote.
But quarantine is just beginning ... What will happen next? " In the photo - burnt, with holes and spots stained notes in the amount of 65 thousand rubles. But probably without viruses!
Internet users are advised not to stop there and expose the remains of banknotes to further disinfection. For example, one of the Muscovite subscribers noted that "if you hold it in an open flame, the viruses must die, and then you don’t have to go to the bank to restore the bills." I wonder if she will take this advice.
The Russian safety agency, Rospotrebnadzor strongly recommends using paper notes and metal rubles as little as possible - a non-contact payment method reduces the risk of contracting a coronavirus. But if you already hold money in hands, after carefully disinfect skin.
A duck was detained in Russia that came from Vietnam because of suspicion of coronavirus - they wanted to kill her, but promised to release her after the 14 days in isolation
Arriving on April 27 in Novosibirsk with a flight from Vietnam, a duck named Borislav was detained at the Tolmachevo airport - taken from the owners and quarantined because the duck did not have veterinary permission to enter Russia, Siberia newspaper reported.
Borislav is registered as a pet: she has an international passport, a special chip, the necessary vaccinations and a certificate of export - in Vietnamese and English. The duck did not have only an import permit from the Rosselkhoznadzor. According to Litvinova, back in Vietnam, she tried to contact the agency by phone and email, but no one answered her.
History of Borislav:
Litvinova and her husband bought a duckling in Vietnam seven months ago. “We saw enough horror in Vietnam, how they sell live ducks for food and wanted to save at least one duckling,” Litvinova said.
At first, the duck was called Borei, because they thought it was a male. Later it turned out that the duck is a female, so she became Borislav. The bird has its own instagram, it lives with the owners in the apartment, it is perceived as a child.
When the mistress and Borislav flew to Novosibirsk, the bird was taken. “Leaving the duck at the airport was scary: when the employee of the veterinary control called her boss, he told her over the speakerphone:“ Write out the act, we’ll kill tomorrow, ”said Litvinova.
What else is known:
On April 30, the Rosselkhoznadzor announced that they would return Borislav to the owners when they received the results of the survey. The duck is still in isolation in Tolmachevo.
“The bird responds adequately to feeding, feels satisfactory and daily takes water procedures,” the department said.
Litvinova and her husband lives in Yalta, while in Novosibirsk they were sent to quarantine for two weeks in an observatory.
Earlier, a Spitz named Mila flew from Thailand to quarantine “without the right to walk”. The owner of the dog was threatened with a fine if this requirement is violated. Mila was placed in the observatory with him.
