The ruling on Monday underlined the chaotic public health approaches being taken to stop the spread of the new coronavirus from China.

Alla llyina was admitted to the hospital in St. Petersburg on Feb. 6 with a sore throat and was tested because she had recently returned from China.

She says she tested negative three times for the new virus.

The next day she broke out of the hospital by disabling an electronic lock in her room.
