    Situation is certainly alarming, as this plague is creating havoc, across our nation..... Even normal humans, are prone to depression, as loss of livelihood due to Lockdown, an uncertain future... fear grips the mind... which seldom results in sucidal actions....

    A corona sick person will get many side effects of it.Mostly mentally sick many times.So one has to be careful .Should have either fix him to bed or give him tablets to be quite.was noone near him as he tried to jump?Or wanted to escape from hospital?Many people get speech problem after one is sick for long time.Hope he got his lesson learnt.and not try again to jump.

    'Men more vulnerable to Covod-19' Men are more prone to heart attack or age rated ailments, men have a shorter lifespan therefore our society has more widows than widowers - OH WOMAN, WHAT ARE YOU MADE UP OF !!!!

    "men have a shorter lifespan therefore our society has more widows than widowers -" age difference between husband and wife is high in India compared to advanced countries.... moreover most men in India spoil their health by drinking, smoking etc. so there are more widows than widowers...
