Kerala: 55-year-old who tested positive for COVID-19 dies by suicide in Thrissur hospital

In an appalling incident, a 55-year-old man, who had been undergoing treatment for COVID-19, reportedly died by suicide at the Thrissur Medical College Hospital early on Monday morning.

The man, identified as Sreenivasan, a native of Muthuvara in Thrissur, was also suffering from pancreatitis. Another patient found him hanging in the hospital bathroom.

As per the reports, the man had been admitted to the hospital with Severe Acute Respiratory Infection last week after he tested positive for COVID-19.

“The patient was suffering from severe pain due to pancreatitis. He was very much depressed as even painkillers failed to give him any relief. It may be the reason which had forced him to take this extreme step,” a staff in the isolation ward told P T I.

Police said they were trying to ascertain the exact reason behind the extreme step. Earlier, two patients, under COVID-19 observation, had died by suicide at the government medical college, Thiruvananthapuram Medical College last June.
