The coronavirus mass hysteria can push people over the edge.
In this case, a man thought his doctor girlfriend gave him the virus and strangled her to death, yet apparently none of them had the virus.
People may be starting to experience “coronavirus” psychosomatic symptoms, as is generally the case with mass hysterias involving illness. It’s called “mass psychogenic illness.”
This is a psychosis.
A nurse strangled his doctor girlfriend before telling police officers that he unleashed the attack because she gave him Covid-19, prosecutors say.
Student doctor Lorena Quaranta, 27, was found dead after her boyfriend Antonio De Pace allegedly called them to say he had killed her.
Antonio de Pace and Lorena Quaranta
Both had been working in Messina, Sicily, but were drafted in to help out with the coronavirus outbreak.
Lorena will be awarded her medical degree posthumously as a tribute, Messina University says.
De Pace, 28, called officers in the early hours of Tuesday to tell them that he had murdered his partner, according to reports in Italy.
Police then called paramedics because they found De Pace had cut his wrists and discovered him on the floor of the apartment, officers said.
He was saved by Lorena’s colleagues at the hospital and stunned police say he then told them: ‘I killed her because she gave me coronavirus.’
However, nothing could be done to save Lorena, sparking a murder probe by the Messina prosecutor.
Authorities are doubtful about De Pace’s story. Early indications from testing carried out last night suggest that neither he nor his girlfriend had the virus.
It’s deeply unsettling that a nurse can’t figure out the proper way to cut his wrists and die.
But then again, it’s also pretty unsettling that he’d kill his girlfriend and try to kill himself because he’s scared of literally just the flu.
Tragedies like this one are the consequence of the media fueling the coronavirus hysteria and governments losing the plot and engaging in self-destructive behavior.
