A man undergoing treatment for corona at VIMS in the city jumped off the hospital building and died on Thursday.

So far, three covid patients in the hospital died in a similar way.
In a similar incident, a covid patient at KGH block ended his life recently.
Reacting to the suicide tendency among the covid patients, Subrahmanyam Kovvali, physician and CBT specialist, said that extreme fear and uncertainty over treatment leads to panic among patients. It would affect logical thinking leading to irrational behavior that finally force one to take the extreme step, Dr. Subrahmayam added.
