Someone Spat In A Female Cop’s Face, And She Was DEAD Six Months Later…
A policewoman is dead after contracting tuberculosis from a suspect who spat in her face.
The female officer, Arina Koltsova, was arresting a man on New Year’s Day when he spits in her face. However, at the time of the arrest, Koltsova did not know that the man was infected with tuberculosis.
Koltsova went untreated for some time until she collapsed at work one day. She was then diagnosed with tuberculosis and started treatment.
“She became ill after New Year's Day,” Her on-duty partner, Officer Mikhail Kindrakevich, told the Daily Mail. “She had arrested this guy and he spat in her face. Some time later she collapsed. She had received treatment. She underwent chemotherapy, she was fed food through an IV drip and she had lost a lot of weight”
The chemotherapy, frequently used to treat critical cases of tuberculosis, had sapped her completely and became the cause of her acute undernourishment.
A selfie of Koltsova taken a few days before her death, showed her hollow cheek and gaunt face, and short hair that she had during her last days.
Koltsova passed away in Kiev on July 25 and was buried two days later. Tributes poured in for her and she was being called the ‘irreplaceable’ woman.
She was a well-known police officer in the Ukrainian capital, especially after the photos of her good looks started spreading across social media.
'This is an irreplaceable loss for the whole of Kiev police, fond memories of Arina will remain in our hearts forever," Koltsova’s police department wrote on its social media page.
One of Koltsova’s friends also mentioned that she always had a dream of doing something for her country and her enlisting in the police force was a decision she made consciously as she wanted to bring about positive change and make things better in society.
Tuberculosis can be treated by taking antibiotics for six to twelve months according to the National Institutes of Health. Some of the cases can be drug-resistant and cannot be treated easily.
It is not clear as to the type of tuberculosis Koltsova suffered from or if she could not be saved because she was not diagnosed fast enough for successful treatment.
It is not confirmed if the man, who spat in her face, was charged and held on trial.
He may not be charged with her death. Give the police in your area a break. They are doing a job that most of us wouldn’t even consider doing.
The dangers they face are more than most of us can imagine, and they do it all to keep us safe.
Rest in Peace, Arina.
