A handsome young nurse has taken her own life after she tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.
Daniela Trezzi - a 34-year-old nurse who'd been treating patients at the San Gerardo Hospital in Monza in the very hard-hit region of Lombardy - reportedly took her own life after spending a couple weeks at home sick.
Yesterday, the death toll in Italy rose by 683 to 7,503, and the number of confirmed cases increased from 69,176 to 74,386, according to official figures.
Italy is still suffering greatly from the outbreak of the Corona epidemic, as the virus continues to claim thousands of lives, as well as the daily toll of infections continues to rise significantly, which gave sad and tragic atmosphere to one of the most attractive countries in Europe.
As per the report, Trezzi had been working in an emergency unit she tried positive for the infection that causes COVID-19, so, all in all, she went into isolate.
Trezzi's death is now under investigation, according to local media reports.
"The condition and stress to which our professionals are subjected is under the eyes of all", it said, adding that "a similar episode had happened a week ago in Venice, with the same underlying reasons".
"Each of us has chosen this profession for good and, unfortunately, also for bad: we are nurses", the nurses federation said in its statement.
As you know. Italy has been particularly ravaged by the coronavirus, and almost 6,000 health care workers have been infected.
Nino Cartabellotta, the head of the Gimbe foundation, which collected the data, also canvassed for more measures to protect those risking their lives to save others.
