Man hanged himself in hospitalA 70 year-old Covid-19 patient reportedly died by suicide in the special ward for the virus patients at the district hospital in Haveri of Karnataka.
The man from the Lamani tribe from Ranebennuru had tested positive for Covid-19 on May 3 and was admitted to a local hospital, a police officer said.
On developing complications, he was shifted to Haveri District Hospital on May 5, the officer said.
He was found hanging near the door of the ward on Friday, he said.
The CCTV footage showed the man taking the extreme step after everyone else in the ward went to sleep, the police said.
"There were no complications as such. He was given proper treatment and care. He must have been frustrated," the officer said
