A 60-year-old woman in Punjab’s Phagwara committed suicide by consuming celphos, fearing she had contracted the coronavirus disease, police said on Sunday. Santosh Kaur, a resident of Khurampur village, committed suicide after she complained of a throat problem. She feared that she had contracted the coronavirus disease, her family said.

Though doctors told her that she was hale and healthy and only suffered from a sore throat, she could not get rid of her fears, they said.

Her relatives further said Santosh feared that her children will be afflicted by the disease and consumed celphos in her room.

Earlier, it was also reported that an elderly couple allegedly committed suicide here on Friday over the fear of getting infected by coronavirus, police said.

Bodies of Balwinder Singh (57) and his wife Gurjinder Kaur (55) were found at their home in Sathiala village, they said.

Deputy Superintendent of Police of Baba Bakala Harkrishan Singh said the two left a suicide note in which they said that they were ending their lives “due to coronavirus”.
