According to a press release, the doctor died Sunday of self-inflicted injuries.
On Sunday, police called for medical assistance at the 1800 block of Winston Road.
The victim was identified as Dr. Lorna Breen in New York City. She was taken to the University of Virginia Health System where she succumbed to the accident.
“Frontline health care professionals and first responders are not immune to the mental or physical effects of the current pandemic. On a daily basis, these professionals operate under the most stressful of circumstances, and the coronavirus has introduced additional stressors,” said CPD Chief RaShall Brackney. “Personal Protective Equipment can reduce the likelihood of being infected, but what they cannot protect heroes like Dr. Lorna Breen, or our first responders, against is the emotional and mental devastation caused by this disease.”
