Top New York City ER doctor commits suicide Over Coronavirus
The head of the emergency department at a Manhattan hospital, Dr Lorna Breen, committed suicide after spending days on the front lines of the coronavirus battle.
The battle-weary ER doctor, 49, was only the latest city healthcare worker to take her own life.
Philip Breen, Father of the deceased Doctor said his daughter had gotten sick with the virus while on the job at one point, but then returned to work after about a week and a half of recuperating. Still, the hospital sent her home again, and her family brought her to Virginia.
She had no history of mental illness, he said. But when they last spoke, she told him how excruciating it was to have to continually watch contagion patients die, including some even before they could be taken from the ambulance.
