Tennis player Yaroslava Shvedova, who is also the playing captain of the Kazakhstan tennis team, is currently quarantined at the Nur-Sultan hospital as she was on the same flight with a woman infected with coronavirus. In her Instagram account, Shvedova posted a photo from the hospital in which she was quarantined.

"After arrival, I was placed in stationary quarantine, like all the passengers of that flight." A women from the Milan-Moscow-Nur-Sultan flight, arriving on March 12, became the third coronavirus infected in Kazakhstan. She was one of 90 people on board the plane, including Shvedova.

😷 Многие в Казахстане наверное слышали про рейс из Москвы в Нур-Султан 12ого марта и что на том рейсе была пассажирка летевшая из Милана у которой обнаружился коронавирус.
Так вот я была на том рейса, летела я домой к семье из Калифорнии после того как отменили Индиан Веллс.
Не долго после прилёта меня поместили в стационарный карантин как и всех пассажиров того рейса.
