A Man in Karnataka Kills Himself Over Fears That He Had Contracted Coronavirus then Asks Family to Get Tested in Letter

A man in Karnataka killed himself as he feared that he has become the victim of the pandemic Coronavirus. The police in Karnataka however, mentioned that the man was not in the list of people who had been asked to remain in home quarantine. The police went on to say that the man had also not displayed any symptoms.

The man was 56 years old and lived in Udupi, Karnataka. He allegedly committed suicide on Wednesday because he feared that he had contracted the novel pandemic coronavirus disease also known as COVID-19.

The man was found hanging near a tree outside his house. He had also left a note to his family in which he said he had contracted coronavirus and had asked his family to get themselves tested too. The Karnataka man is survived by his wife and two children.

Nothing is confirmed as of yet, which is why his body was sent for testing. A throat-swab test has been ordered for coronavirus for his body which has now been set in motion; post mortem details are awaited.

The number of positive cases in India has now become more than 600 as the authorities beefed up preparedness to fight the pandemic with the army ordnance factories and central paramilitary forces earmarking more than 2,000 beds in their chain of hospitals only for the isolation and treatment of those affected.
