Italian nurse Daniela Trezzi, 34, took her own life after being diagnosed with coronavirus over fears of infecting others, according to the Daily Mail.

Trezzi was working at a hospital in the hard-hit region of Lombardy.  The National Federation of Nurses of Italy confirmed her death, telling the news outlet that Trezzi had been suffering “heavy stress” because she feared she was spreading the virus.

“Each of us has chosen this profession for good and, unfortunately, also for bad: we are nurses,” the federation said.

“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.”

Trezzi worked in the intensive care unit of San Gerardo of Monza Hospital.

The hospital’s manager told the nurse’s federation that Trezzi had been home sick since March 10.

Thirty-three doctors have died in Italy from coronavirus, according to the Italian Federation of Doctors.

The death toll in Italy has surpassed 7,500, according to authorities there. More than 5,700 medical workers have now been infected, over eight percent of the country’s total cases.
