A 35-year-old man, suspected to be coronavirus infected, allegedly committed suicide. He jumped off the 7th floor of Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital.
This incident took place soon after he was admitted to the hospital’s isolation ward by airport authorities as a coronavirus suspect.
The news came into the picture when the doctor saw a body lying on the floor in the patient’s room at around 9.15 pm and he was then declared dead on the spot.
It was found during the preliminary inquiry that the man hails from Punjab and he was staying in Sydney for the past one year. He had traveled to Delhi on an Air India flight.
The 35-year-old man had complained of a headache after he returned from Australia. His samples have been collected for testing and the reports are awaited.
India has reported more than 150 active coronavirus cases. Section 144 has been imposed in some parts of Rajasthan, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, in view of the coronavirus spread.
To prepare for the increasing number of patients, hospitals are switching to the most urgent procedures. Operating rooms have been converted to isolate and treat the infected.
