34-year-old beautiful nurse commits suicide after testing positive for coronavirus and fearing to infect others

An Italian nurse working on the frontline of the coronavirus outbreak allegedly committed suicide after testing positive for COVID-19, the Daily Mail reports.

Daniela Trezzi, 34, worked in the intensive care ward of a hospital in Lombardy, one of the worst-affected regions in Italy, and was allegedly afraid she had spread the virus to the patients and people she had come into contact with before her diagnosis.

Trezzi’s death was confirmed by the National Federation of Nurses of Italy, in a statement that claimed Trezzi had been under “heavy stress” as a frontline worker working to stop the spread of the virus despite becoming infected with it.

After Trezzi was diagnosed with the virus, she was put into quarantine. A general manager from the hospital she worked at claimed Trezzi had not worked since March 10 and “was not under surveillance.”

“Each of us has chosen this profession for good and, unfortunately, also for bad: we are nurses,” the nurses federation said in its statement.

Trezzi’s death is now under investigation, according to local media reports.

Italy has become the worst affected country outside of China since the outbreak of the coronavirus with more than 63,000 confirmed cases totalling more than 6,000 deaths as of Wednesday, according to the World Health Organization.
