Maharashtra MBBS intern allegedly commits suicide, work stress blamed
Maharastra: In an unfortunate incident, a 24-year-old young doctor of the Solapur government Civil Hospital has allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in his room. Although the reason for his suicide is still unclear, he is reported to have committed suicide due to work stress.
The doctor was working as an intern in Solapur government hospital after the completion of his MBBS course. He deployed at the COVID ward of the hospital.
The growing number of COVID patients in the state is putting a strain on the health system and it has increased the stress on doctors as well. The hospital administration is shocked by the incident. In Solapur too, the number of COVID patients is increasing day by day. As this number grows, so does the pressure on the health facilities and the doctors. At a time like this when all the health workers are extending their services day and night to handle the pandemic scenario, the untimely death of a young doctor has brought grief into the medical community.
