January 22 According to a report by the Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK), a woman in her 30s in Tokyo, Japan, committed suicide while convalescentsing at home after contracting the novel coronavirus.
According to relevant sources, in January 2021, a woman in her 30s was found dead in an apartment in Tokyo. It is understood that the woman was known to have contracted the novel coronavirus at that time and was nursing at home.
Judging from the situation at the scene, his death is suicide.
The deceased left a message during his death: “I’m very sorry for the trouble caused to the people around me for my own sake.” Although the woman was infected with the novel coronavirus, she had almost no symptoms, but she was distressed to think that other infected people around her might have been infected by herself.
At present, the relevant agencies are investigating this.
Yuko Ueda, a prospective professor at Waseda University, who began to investigate the psychological impact of the spread of the novel coronavirus epidemic, pointed out that more and more people are convalescent at home, and it is necessary to take psychological counseling and other relevant countermeasures.
Ryuko Ueda pointed out: “Many people will have various psychological pressures after contracting the novel coronavirus, such as whether they transmit the virus to others and whether they cause trouble to others.” In addition, when convalescence at home, some patients have to do trivialities such as housework while worrying about their own health; the communication between infected people and others is also limited.
Ryuko Ueda said, “It is necessary to improve the relevant system for infected people.
We must not only investigate the health status of infected people, but also carefully grasp their mental state and guide them in time.”
