A 34-year-old Italian medical Nurse chipping away at the bleeding edges of the coronavirus pandemic ended her own life in the wake of testing positive for the sickness and was unnerved that she had contaminated others.
Daniela Trezzi had been suffering from “heavy stress” in the midst of fears she was spreading the destructive bug while treating patients at the San Gerardo Hospital in Monza in the hard-hit locale of Lombardy, the Daily Mail reported.
She was working in the emergency unit while tested positive for COVID-19, as indicated by the UK news site.
The National Federation of Nurses of Italy communicated its “pain and dismay” over Trezzi’s passing, which came as the death toll rise to 743 in one day.
“Every one of us has picked this profession for good and sadly for bad too: we are attendants,” the league said.
“The condition and worry to which our experts are oppressed are under the eyes of all,” it stated, adding that “a similar episode had happened a week ago in Venice, with the same underlying reasons.”
Around 5,760 health care workers have been contaminated by the infection, as per figures discharged Tuesday by an Italian research foundation.
