Covid-19 Positive Woman Jumps to Death from Hospital after ‘Not Being Allowed to Fast’ on Karva Chauth
Covid-19 positive woman, admitted to Etawah’s Saifai Medical University, killed herself by jumping from the third floor of the university’s building on Wednesday. The body of the woman was handed over to her relatives after the post mortem. The reason behind her taking such an extreme step has not yet been ascertained, however, some linked her death to her being unable to perform Karva Chauth puja.
The Covid positive woman was admitted to Etawah’s Saifai Medical University on Wednesday when a section of Hindu women was observing a fast on the occasion of Karva Chauth, a festival when women pray for the health of their husband.
The woman, who hailed from Mainpuri district, was admitted to the hospital’s isolation ward. According to preliminary information, the woman was suffering from a neuro-ailment and was first admitted to the female neuro-surgery department on October 27 for treatment. However, on October 29, when her Covid-19 test report came back positive, she was shifted to isolation ward number 5 on the hospital’s third floor.
