Tributes have poured in from around the world for the poor Italian nurse who contracted coronavirus and took her own in life in fear of spreading it on to her patients.
A 34-year-old Italian nurse working on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic tragically took her own life after being tested positive for the disease and was reportedly afraid of infecting others.
Daniela Trezzi was suffering from severe stress when she feared that the deadly coronavirus would spread while treating patients at San Gerardo de Monza Hospital in the affected region of Lombardy, the Daily Mail reports.
She worked in intensive care while she was in quarantine after she was diagnosed with COVID-19.
Tributes have been paid to the poor nurse, including the National Association of Nurses in Italy:
“Each of us has chosen this profession for good and, unfortunately, also for bad: we are nurses,” the federation said.
“The condition and stress to which our professionals are subjected is under the eyes of all,” it said, adding that “a similar episode had happened a week ago in Venice, with the same underlying reasons.”
Hospital general manager Mario Alparone said that Ms Trezzi had been at home sick since March 10th and that “she was not under surveillance.”
