Chinese coronavirus doctors are beaten by a patient's family


Two Chinese doctors working day and night to save coronavirus sufferers have been savagely beaten in a hospital by a man after his father-in-law, 68, died of the deadly disease, it has been alleged.

The culprit was reported to hit the pair of medics and even ripped open their hazmat suits and face masks, which were critical in preventing them from catching the virus at work. 

Police have arrested the suspect and launched an investigation.

The assault took place yesterday afternoon at Wuhan's No. 4 Hospital. 

A picture shared by multiple publications purports to show the injuries on one of the doctors' neck.

Beijing Youth Daily reported that the attacker was believed to be angry at the fact that his father-in-law had been killed by the fast-spreading virus. 

A nurse told the newspaper that the doctors' hazardous materials suits were torn apart by the perpetrator.

One of the medics who were beaten sustained fractures and had to have a cast, the report said. 

The medic, who remains unidentified, did not know when they could return to work, but hoped that the public could pay more attention on the outbreak instead of the attack.

Police have identified the suspect as Ke. 

The public security bureau of Qiaokou District in Wuhan said in a statement today that Ke was emotional and beat the doctors in the head and neck.

Officers confirmed that the medics' face masks and hazmat suits were ripped during the incident. 

The police said they arrested Ke in the wee hours today in the hospital's quarantine units.

Ke is under detention while further investigation is being carried out.
