A man has allegedly committed suicide after his wife succumbed to the coronavirus disease.
This is according to multiple-award-winning health blogger, Kelvin Odonkor, who is also a Covid-19 frontline health worker.
In a social media post to share the story, Mr. Odonkor disclosed that the man took his own life barely 48-hours after the death of the wife.
“After 30 days of fighting the virus, complications to her kidneys, lack of funds to keep up with dialysis/medications, in and out of coma, she passed on. Barely 48 hours after, the husband who did every errands, visited day and night, also passed on, sadly by suicide,” he narrated.
