COVID-19 positive young nurse tries to suicide

A Malayali nurse, who was tested positive for coronavirus tried to commit suicide. The 22-year-old nurse, has been working at a private hospital in Gurugram, had shown signs of common cold, and was confirmed with COVID-19 on Thursday morning. After she was tested positive, she tried to suicide by hanging herself in her room, opposite the hospital. She is currently in a very critical condition in the intensive care unit.

“Nurses in the building had gone to check on her. As soon as they saw her, they immediately began cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and then she was taken to Medanta. The next 48 hours are critical for her. Let us hope for the best,” said Sithosh Thomas, zonal secretary of United Nurses Association (UNA). It is said that she contracted the disease from a patient who was getting treated in her department.
