As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, another rather unfortunate case is coming out of New York City in America.
A man who called 911 early Tuesday morning to announce that he tested positive for covid-19 appealed to the cops to kill him.
The 55-year man was realized to have underlying health challenges which may lead to complications with the arrival of the virus in his system.
As the police arrived his location, they sighted in him with a knife but later realized it was a black powder gun.
The police ordered him to drop the gun, which he refused and kept on advancing towards the cops then they shot at him a couple of times hitting his back and hip.
In a conversation with the man later, he told the Chief of Department of New York Police,Terence Monahan that he tested positive for coronavirus last night, NBC New York reported..
But according to the police, it is unclear if he actually tested positive to coronavirus as claimed.
But Monahan said” He wanted the cops to shoot and kill him”.
As we are made to understand anyone with underlying health challenges is likely not going to find it easy with the covid-19 infection.
That said, I doubt if that translates to the fact that ones the person is under such a condition and has been attacked by the virus then it is straight death sentence.
At least the person still needs to be checked properly the and treated by the medics .
I believe there is a great chance he might still be fine at the end of it all.
Meanwhile the said man has been taken for treatment after which he might be charged for the various crimes he has committed due to the act
