A Covid-19 patient, undergoing treatment at Chandpur General Government Hospital, reportedly attempted suicide by jumping off the second floor of the hospital on Saturday.

When Beauty’s mother-in-law who was attending her went to the toilet around 6 PM, she jumped off the second floor of the hospital, injuring her right leg and backbone, said its medical officer, Omar Faruk.

Though she is still Corona positive, Beauty was doing well, Faruk said, adding that she is now being treated for her bone injuries.
