Jabalpur (MP): A 46-year-old COVID-19 patient allegedly jumped to death from the second floor of a government-run hospital in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur district, an official said on Saturday. This is a second such incident reported from Netaji Subhash Chandra Medical College and Hospital since last month.

The patient jumped off the second floor of the hospital’s super-speciality wing on Friday and succumbed to his injuries within hours at night, the hospital’s dean Dr P K Kasar told PTI. The man hailed from the adjoining Katni district, and was admitted to the hospital for COVID-19 treatment, he said, adding that the patient also suffered some psychological ailment.

The patient was examined by a psychiatrist two days ago upon his admission and was also given treatment for it, Kasar said. In a similar incident on September 4, a 64-year-old man undergoing treatment for coronavirus committed suicide by jumping from the second floor of the hospital.

Prior to this, the staff of the super-speciality wing of the hospital had prevented two infected patients from taking the extreme step.
